Poros is a small Greek island-pair in the southern part of the Saronic Gulf, at a distance of about 58 km (31 nautical miles) south from Piraeus and separated from the Peloponnese by a 200-metre wide sea channel, with the town of Galatas on the mainland across the strait. It is the island of peace, romance and jauntiness. It is overgrown with pine trees which reach the rugged shores or the sandy beaches.
Its Historic Clock is imposing from the distance on the highest top of the hill, among
prickly pears and pine trees. It was built in 1927, is visible from every part of the island and is the jewel of the town.
Recent studies suggest that Poros has been inhabited since the Bronze Age. Graves on the island have been dated to the Mycenaean period, and manmade structures have existed on it since at least 1000 BCE.
At the centre of town you can find a lot of attractions such as the archaeological museum, the library, the picturesque church of Virgin Maria and the Temple of Poseidon.
