The dream island

Higher than the port, and at a distance of 2 km. is the country of Ios. Picturesque and off-white, it is built amphitheatrically on the hill, at the top of which the beautiful lady of the island is imagined! Panagia Gremniotissa. The view from there is panoramic. The whole village poured on its feet in front. The port on the right, the windmills on the left, and opposite the neighboring islands of Sikinos and Santorini. In fact, when the weather allows, Crete stands out in the background. The church of Gremniotissa is of Byzantine architecture and is dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. Tradition explains why the people of Niot built the church on the steep cliffs at the top of the hill.

Arriving in the village the visitor meets the remains of the ancient wall that protected the main settlement of the island in earlier years, and then the church of the Annunciation (Cathedral) and the entrance of Chora, one of the most beautiful and characteristic Cycladic. The classic Cycladic architecture dominates in all the buildings of the village. Thick walls, made of stone in order to protect from heat and cold. The whitewash of the houses reflects the sun, offering island coolness. Among the older houses there are many small churches and of course in Chora there are many restaurants, hotels, rooms to let, shops, cafes, bars and everything else for relaxation. comfortable and fun stay.
