Pirate Village



The Saracen pirates once turned the ancient palaces in Palatia (one of the four ancient cities in Karpathos) into small arched houses. In 1420 almost all island residents abandoned Saria because of constant pirate attacks. The pirates changed the houses in the city of Palatia into theirs and one single-chamber bizarre building with a semicircular roof, reminding us off an egg, is still standing.
