The Lilliputian road, which seems as though it's hiding at the left end of the square, leads to Omali and the port. Another road to the left, Kalentzi Street, plays a significant role with regard to the vigourness of and the struggle for living.

Old and spacious houses host in their basements every kind of flourishing shops such as barbershops, groceries, fishermen's, jeweler's, the international news stand with Greek and
foreign magazines and newspapers as well as the Greek Telecommunications Company (OTE) bureau where one can make international as well as domestic phone calls.
On the left back streets lead to the port whereas
on the right picturesque cobbled roads and staircases connect the down street with the uptown neighborhoods.
