The `Bourtzi` is the small wooded peninsular between the old port and the new ferry harbour. During the summer, the local council arrange a series of cultural events here and tickets for these events can be purchased from the tourist information booth nearby.
The Bourtzi consists of a beautiful old stone building, an open air theatre and a traditional coffee shop. Exhibitions are held in the main building whilst the open air theatre has performances of such things as concerts, plays and traditional Greek shadow theatre. The cafe, with its sea and harbour backdrop, hosts many live music evenings throughout the summer.
