Kythnos Chora – Loutra – Castle of Oria

This trail starts at the northern side of Chora heading northwest. Follow it, as it turns northeast, after a while, and crosses the asphalt road, which you will meet again 250m further north. You will have continuous visual contact with the settlement of Loutra, after walking past Agia Irini. Keep walking downhill and you will reach the settlement after 50 minutes. The trail is in good condition and has dry stone walls on both sides past the second intersection with the asphalt road. The second part of the route, which ends at the Castle of Oria, begins at the southern side of Loutra, at the intersection of the road from Chora to Loutra with a dirt road. The last uphill climb after the chapel of Agios Filippos leads to two alternative routes that create a ring before reaching the Castle. The southern one is easier to discern. Non-stop duration: 2 hours and 15 minutes.
