What's There?

Known as the Maiden's Tower, for the legend of a king who was told by an oracle that his daughter would die bitten by a snake. The tower was commissioned by the king in order to protect his beloved daughter from her dark fate.
It is also know as the Leander's Tower, for the ancient Greek legend of Hero and Leander. Hero, a priestess of Aphrodite fell in love with Leander, a young man who swam every night to meet with his beloved in her place of reclusion... the tower.
Unfortunately, both legends have a tragic ending that we don't want to spoil, so you can make Leander's journey to the tower, by boat, of course, and discover the end of the stories by yourself.

There is a museum, restaurant and romantic cafe with a 360-degree view in the island where the Maiden's Tower has been proudly standing for centuries.
