About PorosThe picturesque town of Poros is the capital and main port of the island. It is amphitheatrically built on the slopes of a green hill and extends till the sea. Paved narrow streets cross the town, elegant houses can be seen on sides and lovely squares come around in the corners. The waterfront of Poros looks lovely with the small fishing boats moored in the marina and the cafeterias with view to the sea. The trademark of Poros is the Clock Tower that stands on the hill on top of the town. This clock tower was built in 1927 and looks imposing. It is the first thing to see as the ferry reaches the island.
