About Archaeological Site of Ftelia
On the way from Chora to Ano Mera, Ftelia is a large beach, set between two hills that jut out into the water. The ruins themselves occupy only a small area slightly above the center of the beach, but they are rich in historical value. There is also a charming restaurant above it where you can enjoy lunch out on the terrace.
Also at the neigbouring bay of Panormos is thought to be the location of the first organised community on the island, and up the hill of Paleokastro you'll find ancient Byzantine fortifications among the ruins of the 13th century Gisi tower.
