Very little remains of the original port since it would have been surrounded by huge walls as the rest of this part of the peninsula would have been giving it the impression of a castle fortress resting on the edge of the sea. On both sides of the entrance were towers with a chain suspended between. The base of these are still there.
Just behind this is Sailors' cemetery which is laid out so that almost every grave can have a seaview. Major occupations would have been with fishing, piracy or the navy.
In this photo we can see a fisherman attending the nets.
