Chora of Ios

Chora of Ios is built higher than the port of the island (2 km), on the slopes of a hill. It is a typical sample of Cycladic architecture, with its chapels, the white-washed cube-shaped houses set one next to another, the internal network with the arcades, the winding streets and the stairs. At the top there is Panagia Gremiotissafrom where the visitor can enjoy a panoramic view. The ancient city was located where Chora is now. It was surrounded by a wall of cyclopean size, part of which is preserved until now. It can be seen by following the ring road from the sea to the mills, which were 12 in total. Relics of the church of Pythios Apollon, at Agia Aikaterini are preserved from specific ancient civilization.

The port of Ios

It is considered one of the safest in the Cyclades, due to its morphology. The chapel of Agia Irini (17th century) built in the entrance of the port welcomes the visitors arriving by ship or their own boat. There are stores, cafés, ouzeri, restaurants, hotels, rooms to let, vehicle rental offices etc. You can swim and do water sports there. Info Small boats depart from the port organizing excursions to the beaches of the island.
