The island's capital, Hora, is concealed in a natural amphitheater in the mountain six kilometers above Kamariotissa—the better to hide it from pirates during the medieval period. It's a small but charming town of narrow streets that twist their ways up and down along the hillside, and the central section offers a number of popular restaurants, Greek-style kafeneion with their tables spilling out onto the street, and trendy Western-styled cafιs, many with beautiful views over the sea. It also hosts the island's small hospital, a tiny but entrancing folklore museum, and the ruins of a fort.
