The village of Assos is built in one of the most idyllic parts of the island at the narrowest point of the small Assos promontory. The houses, with their distinctive local architecture, are tucked away amidst the thick vegetation of pine and cypress trees. The picturesque little harbour with its fishing boats is a mooring place for a large number of yachts. The Venetian Castle of Assos with its mysterious atmosphere, built at the end of 16th century to protect the inhabitants from pirate raids, is in a good state of preservation. Parts of the fortifications can be seen, together with the entrance to the castle and the ruins of the house of the of the Venetian Provveditore, who had his seat here, and the church of Agios Markos. The wooded hill on which the fortress stands affords a breathtaking view of Myrtos bay and the west coast of the Erisos peninsula. Lower down the hill is the chapel of Profitis Ilias, which has a wood-carved iconostasis. This photo is taken from the road to Assos' castle.
