  • Canal D' Amour (Sidari): The famous Canal d'Amour, a tunnel, a passage through the rock. Legend goes that if you swim through it, then at the other side you will meet the love of you life, perhaps because the older people knew that swimming here you will feel the deep desire to share you life with someone else.
