It took its name from the old wine pressures (Patitiria) that used to exists, from when Alonissos was a red wine produser island.
Patitiri became the main town of the island accomodating the facilities of life, today. Someone can find lots of places to stay and taste our delicious sea food snacks.
Further to the North we meet the next two fishing villages, Rousoum - Yialo and Votsi, located at two charming bays, one after the other. Continuing to the North, one finds many wonderfull beaches to swim such as: Milia, Chrisi Milia, Tzortzi - Yialo, Lefto - Yialo e.t.c.
The visitor can reach the beaches either by land or by sea, using cars or small taxi - boats which do these tours.
Leaving Patitiri and taking the main road, leading West, after 3 km. you come to the old village of Alonissos. For those who love walking, there is the old donkey path, which takes you from the port to the old Alonissos within 30min.
