Patitiri is the capital and the island’s port. The settlement is built on the mountain slopes and creates a wall around Alonissos or Chora, which suffered a lot of catastrophes during the 1965 earthquake. Residents then had to abandon the island. So, from 1978 the capital was transferred to Patitiri.
The settlement started to develop just during the latest years and it doesn’t have the typical feature of a traditional insular settlement.
The white painted houses along with the green landscapes create a dreamy picture.
