In 1647, the Turks captured the town. You can still see remnants of
their occupation in the old town near the harbour, such as the remains of a Turkish
fountain in front of a derelict mosque (now being renovated).
The Venetians built the fortress and harbour and in 1626, they enlarged and reinforced it. Recently, the castle was restored by the city.
