Arguably the most important attraction is the Venetian castle of Maltezana. The current form of the fortification was given its final shape at the beginning of the 15th century. Inside the castle was gathered at the time the entire residential island life.

Visit Vathi to see the Dragon Cave with the impressive decoration of stalactites and stalagmites and the area of Vatses with Negro Cave, widely mentioned in the myths about pirates and hidden treasures. Other major attractions of the island are the windmills in Chora and a number of post-Byzantine religious monuments.
