Many magnificent neoclassical mansions can be seen from that period as well as the remains of the large stone-built factories at the \"Ormos\" seaside.
The towns economy shifted to trade after World War II and the collapse of the leather market. Pottery and brick-making became a flourishing business due to the rare quality of the soil within the environs of Karlovasi while the towns market was continuously growing to become the largest and most important within the Island.
The connection of the Karlovasi Port with Seferihisars Sığacık, in Turkey, brings a large number of travelers within the island.
Lykourgos Logothetis, the islands leader during the Greek War of Independence was born here in 1772. Karlovasi is additionally closely linked to Yiannis Ritsos, one of the countrys most important poets, who spend most of his summers in his Karlovasi house, now the residence of his daughter, author Eri Ritsou.
Karlovasi has an unusually large number of almost cathedral-size churches, due to the fact that the modern town was formed by the unification of four smaller ones, all of them hometowns of wealth patrons such as tannery moguls and ship owners. The main touristic sights are the Tannery Museum, the Folklore Museum, the 11th century church of Metamorfosis and the adjoining Venetian castle at Potami. The waterfalls of Potami and the nearby coastes of Mikro and Megalo Seitani are among the islands most popular attractions."
