In the ancient times it was called Arkitis and the modern settlement (Porto - Augusta) has been built on the bay, on top of a hill were there are remains of a tower and a fortress of the 4th c.B.C. with worship activity in antiquity.

It is a dream place for visitors, but also for the locals. If you walk uphill during a full moon from the port,

high on the hill to Panagia Pantanassa, you will see the sea mirroring all around and the islands, as if they were carved by a painter.
