Photographer's Note

This is the Siren. It's not a very know site of Chalkis and located at the old city on the centre of the modern Chalkis.

Well I don't know too much infos about it. I know only that is a Venetian tower from the era of the Venish occupation of the city.

At the World War II, it was the war siren of the city, and it's name is from this! :) In Chalkis is known as "Seirina" (The Siren).

Now has many irons arround because it was ready to collapse! I believe it's safe for now. Around are very nice and beautiful old houses from the end of 19th century, not so many anymore! :(

I believe it's a site which worth to see if you visit my hometown. It's only 10 minutes walk away from Paralia of Chalkis and 2 minutes from Market (Agoras) square.
