The charming, circular Voulismeni Lake in the centre of town, where small boats can find protection, connects to the harbour by a channel dug in 1870. At one time, many people believed that the lake was bottomless, but a depth reading done by an English sea captain calculated it to be 64 metres deep. According to legend, the goddess Athena bathed in the lake. Today, tavernas surround the lake and there is a small zoo on the southwest side.
