port view Karlovasi-Samos
Karlovassi village Samos: Karlovassi is the second largest town of Samos and it counts on 5,000 inhabitants most of whom are engaged in tourism and fishing. It is located 32 km north west of Samos town. The town of Karlovassi lies in one of the most fertile areas of Samos and consists of three settlements: the old town (at the port), the middle town and the new town.

The whole area is adorned with 19th century neoclassical buildings and elegant mansions that witness its glorious past. Numerous impressive churches embellish the town, like the Church of the Holy Trinity (the church of Agia Triada) that stands on top of the highest hill in Karlovasi, dominating the settlement.

Deserted tanneries still stand today, remnants of a time when commerce and trade flourished which brought wealth to the inhabitants of Karlovassi. It is the town where the first newspaper of Samos was published. Karlovassi offers many sightseeings like the ruins of a Byzantine castle, the waterfalls, the ceramic workshops and few lovely tiny villages in short distance from Karlovassi.
