The town of Poros is built on the small peninsula of Sferia overlooking the port. Its main characteristic is the presence of the impressive clock which can be seen from a very long distance. That clock was made in the year of 1927.
On the outskirts of the town the visitor can see the «Progymnastirio», the Military Navy Facilities. The town is, indeed, the commercial, economical and cultural centre of the island and that is why all people love walking around. There are many neoclassical and Venetian buildings, narrow paved streets, while on the waterfront various cafeterias, tavernas and souvenirs are lined up.
