Daphne is the largest port in Agio Oros; the majority of the faithful arrive through here.
The ferryboat and motorboats departing from Ouranoupoli stop at Daphne, where the faithful board the bus to Karyes or taxis to other destinations.
In antiquity, Daphne was the site of a shrine dedicated to Apollon Daphnaios.
Around 1044, it was the site of the original Dochiariou Monastery, which was destroyed by pirates and relocated to its present location.
