Aptera Rooms & Apartments are near the archaeological city of Aptera. Aptera took its name after the victory of the Muses over the Sirens in a musical contest. The contest took place between the city and the sea, and the Muses won. The Sirens lost their wings and they became white. Hence, the city was called Aptera (without wings) and the close small islands were called Leuka (white). The citizen was called Apteraios.
