Greek Travel Pages




  Galissa, at 9 km from Ermoupolis, is a well-known seaside resort, boasting the largest beach of the island. It counts modern hotel complexes, rooms for rent and a camping.
  The village is situated on a picturesque site. Its sandy beaches are crowded by numerous visitors and its pier is a fine place for delightful strolls and sightseeing. If you are romantically inclined, you can walk to the country church of Agios Stefanos, built on the rocks just above the sea. The small snow-white chapel of Agias Pakous (or Ipakous) was built on the foundations of an even older church.
  Remains of an ancient settlement were found here.
