OLYMBI Village CHIOS

Overview

Thirty-one kilometers south of the town of Chios and six kilometers after Pyrgi, visitors encounter the medieval village called Olympi. Its beautiful houses, connected to each other, used to form its defensive wall. The narrow streets, cobbled roads and rigid, yet simple architecture, testify to the village's medieval origin. The whole village has been categorized as a medieval monument. Here, one can see the skepastra and doxharades. The villagers are occupied with agriculture and beehives. The defensive tower of the village is also very impressive. The central tower is one of the few that are still preserved in Chios' medieval villages.
