Take a walk through the quaint streets and stop by a charming cafe, or tour the site to find numerous important buildings. Look for an 1854 Syrian Orthodox church, ornamented with Neo-Gothic elements. See 17th-century warehouses with stepped gables that were once used for storing whaling products, and today host luxury apartments. You can also take a boat tour to learn the history and highlights of the area.
