Skala is the main (only?) town on Patmos. There is a road out of town north and south along the coast and another leading up the mountain to Chora, where the monastery is situated, but in the town itself, you will merely find a few narrow streets like this, leading into open squares.
The streets are mainly used by pedestrians, with the occasional bike or scooter passing through. It's a pleasant place to wander, enjoy a little window-shopping, or sit outside for a drink or a meal and watch the world go by.
Tasteful gift shops, selling clothes, jewellery, souvenirs, etc nestle side by side with the baker's, cafes and tavernas, whereas most of the residents live in a warren of tiny stepped streets, leading off up the hillside from the shopping areas.
