The village of Marmara forms an isosceles triangle on the map with Marpissa and Prodromos. It is near both, but further north. The village took its name from the marble pieces found there, which were used to build the houses.
Make a quick stop on your tour of the island to see the old mansions and churches. Taxiarchis and Kimisi tis Theotokou stand out because of their three distinct bell towers. Pera Panagia, a two-aisle church with three bell towers placed on ancient columns connecting the two aisles, a is just outside Marpissa. One aisle is dedicated to the birth of Theotokos and the other to Agios Nikolaos.
