Karpathos Folklore Paradise

24 August 2015 / 13:08:14  

Karpathos is one of the most remote islands in the Dodecanese archipelago. In the summer, ferries go to its two major ports Pigadia and Diafani twice a week, there are flights from Rhodes to Karpathos twice a week and from Athens once a week. Having managed to arrive at the island, the tourist finds himself or herself amidst a real folklore paradise. Karpathos is famous for its lace and embroidery, carpet making, weaving and pottery. The island has not yet become a mass tourist destination and has retained its original appearance with its pristine beaches and clear waters, the neat taverns offering plenty of local seafood and other delicacies, with unique works of handicraft.
