Port polis

Port Polis satelliteHere the mythology places the departure of Ulysses to the Trojan War .
The place is very picturesque , sheltered from the NW ( but open to the S -SE) ; bottom of sand / seaweed  in 5/10m depth .

From here you can reach ,with a walk,  the village of Stavros  where in the immediate vicinity you can see the ruins of the palace of Odysseus .

It is generally accepted that this bay was used for the ancient town of Polis which stood on the ridge above; a few scattered Mycenaean “finds” prove that there was a Bronze Age settlement here.
