KERAMOS (Village) CHIOS
Keramos emerges from the mountains of Amani and Pelineo through thick and rich vegetation. It was, for many decades, one of the most important villages of Amani due to the mining of antimony. The village is almost 14km from Volissos, at the beginning of the road that connects the road network of Amani with the villages of Leptopoda and Kambia.
You can see the mines and the pitheads of antimony, which are still preserved and were operating up to the mid sixties. The galleries, the premises of the company that had exploited them until recently, the chemical laboratory, the kiln, and the chimney as well as the equipment of the premises are going to be collected by the local authorities in order to create an industrial museum of antimony, a unique of its kind within the Balkan region.

NENITOURIA (Village) CHIOS
Located 65 kilometers north of the town of Chios and a mere 20 kilometers from the village Volissos is Nenitouria. The four communities, Psaros, Kosmados, Hametos and Antrahlias have been united to form one single village, that is, Nenitouria. When entering the village, visitors are impressed by the dale covered with plane trees and large stones. In the wintertime, these stones drown in the gushing waters that brush across their surface. These are the Amanis waters.
The mountainside cradles the village thereby enhancing its resemblance to an amphitheater. Most homes are in ruins and uninhabited. Although the residents' homes are scattered across three communities (the fourth community, Antrahlias, is abandoned), the local cafeteria doesn't fail to bring them together since this is their meeting point. Olive trees, pine trees, plane trees, oak trees and bushes surround the village. The picturesque beach of the village is called Aghios Georghios (St. George) Krasas named after the old chapel located on the beach and dedicated to the Saint. It is approximately five kilometers from the village.
