Avion Tourism Airport Magazine - - Destinations -

Pi­ga­dia is the ca­pi­tal and port of the island of Kar­pa­thos. It was na­med “Pi­ga­dia” af­ter the con­si­de­ra­ble num­ber of wells found in this area. It is a re­la­ti­ve­ly new to­wn, built in the sou­th- est zo­ne of the island, on the si­te of Po­sei­dio ( or Po­ti­da­ion), the island’s an­cient Port. In­si­de of the Epar­cheio Pa­la­ce, built by the Ita­lians, is pos­si­ble to vi­sit an in­for­ma­tion cen­tre for the Me­di­ter­re­nean monk seal and an open- air mu­seum wi­th ar­chaeo­lo­gi­cal finds.
