This is the area once was occupied by ship builders, the traditional tiny houses with narrow alley survived from 17th century till now. A quick stop for an hour or so is nice detour.

Splendid narrow streets and traditional cemeteries. It was a pleasure to walk through this village. Few people today since it was quite rainy but it made the visit more calm.

This coastal village has been preserved as a window into the past. The mostly untreated wooden houses snuggly close together and you walk along narrow paths to explore the place. There is a common at the back of the village with an interesting temple and...More
