Overview of Castle Orias, Vryokastro and Maroulas
Castle Orias, the former medieval capital of the island, overlooks the Aegean, featuring the remains of houses and two churches. From here you can enjoy the superb views, as long as you mind the rough path that leads to the fortification. Vryokastro is the ancient capital of Kythnos – among the relics here you can see the acropolis, aqueduct and temples. Last but not least, in the area of Maroulas lies a Mesolithic open air settlement (the only such discovered in Greece), with important findings.
