What I can see

Passalimani is normally called “Zea”, because this was its name in ancient times. Today, however, only the modern marina right before the entrance of Passalimani is called Zea. At one end of the marina, two bridges – one on the road and one on the sea – saved the seabed and the antiquities from destruction. At the other end, there is a horseshoe-shaped square and the Maritime Museum of Greece. In between, there are ground and two-storey buildings, which were designed by the National Tourism Organization (EOT) and most of them today house restaurants and cafes. In Marina Zeas we see luxurious yachts, while in Passalimani mainly sailboats and fishing boats.

What I can't see

It was part of the major tourism program of the 1960s, which envisaged the transformation of Passalimani into an organized yacht port. It was designed by Aris Konstantinidis and Demosthenes Pippas, and other architects followed afterwards.
