These days, you'll still see old houses in narrow streets altered with more fashionable streets, such as the 'Barlak Sokak', the place to go to when you're looking for restaurants and entertainment when the sun sets over the palm-lined boulevard of this harbour town. The Pigeon Island (just off the coast) offers the ruins of a Byzantine castle....read more »
