Plomari, better known as the region of Plomari, consists of the small town of Plomari and the villages of Akrasi, Ambeliko, Megalochori, Neochori, Palaiochori, Plagia and Trigona.
The city of Plomari is an island city overlooking the blue Aegean.
It is a small town of 3800 inhabitants. It was built in 1845. The modern city is built around the old historical centre and the church of Agios Nikolaos. It consists of the neighbourhoods of Platano, Agia Paraskevi, Tarsana, Agora, Proastio, Prophet Ilias.
East of Plomari and 2 kilometres from it, we will find the summer resort of Agios Isidoros and to the west of Plomari the picturesque area of Ammoudeli.
At the port of Plomari we find the Tarsana neighbourhood (an old shipyard) where, in the last century, sailing vessels were built with special techniques by experienced workers for the Aegean market.
Here we find the Spiritual Center housed in a building of an old soap factory.
The year-round weather is the best in the island regions. Mild winters, beautiful spring, cool summer and an unforgettable Aegean autumn.
You are always welcome to visit the Ouzo Museum, the Cultural Center and appreciate the architecture, enjoy the local traditions and products.
The town has a “Museum of Ouzo” (at the Varvagianni Distillery) where visitors can see old stills and other tools used in the production of Ouzo, labels from various brands of local soap, as well as trade correspondence of soap factory owners with foreign markets.
In the museum hall, there is also a continuous exhibition of photographs of the local boats, as the area had a considerable merchant fleet with which Plomari shipowners sailed the Aegean and the Mediterranean to the Black Sea.
Tourism is highly developed in Plomari, with many hotel complexes, shops, taverns, cafes and souvenir shops.
A small marina with a capacity of 60 boats was recently built in Plomari.
Numerous cultural events take place every summer, the most important of which is the “Festival of Ouzo”, the Maritime Week and the “Benjaminia”.
