Patitiri village is the picturesque central port and the capital of the island. "Patitiri" in Greek means "wine-press" and therefore, the name of this area dates back to the time when viniculture was the main source of income for local population.

In the port of Patitiri, there are several cafés and local taverns to choose from and enjoy the ambience of the port, watching the fishing boats and yachts lying at anchor. Walking to the end of the port, there is a small beach with crystal blue waters surrounded by yellowish rough cliffs and pine trees. By nightfall, all these cliffs are beautifully illuminated. Looking towards the end of the bay, you can also see two neighbouring islands called Dio Aderfia (Two Brothers).
