Overview of Highlights in Chora

The trademark Venetian castle that sits at the hilltop is the number one attraction in Chora. The grey stone wall fortifications contrast marvelously with the whitewashed houses below, while the churches of Panagia tou Kastrou (Evangelistria) and Agios Georgios stand out inside the castle’s settlement. Also in Chora, you can see the series of picturesque, preserved windmills, a real gem of the settlement. Close to Chora, at the area of Kylindra, lies the island’s ancient infant cemetery, said to be the largest in the world. 9/10
