ARMOLIA Village CHIOS

Overview

  The village of Armolia is located two kilometers from Kalamoti and 20 kilometers from the town of Chios on a fertile plain. The village constitutes the island’s central crossroad for the southern villages of Kalamoti, Komi, Pyrgi, Emborios, Olympi, Mesta, Vessa and Lithi. Visitors encounter an artificial lake upon their arrival, which provides water for the animals and is used to water crops. .
  The inhabitants of Armolia maintain a long tradition in ceramic pottery such as pitchers, vases, jars, bowls, cups, etc. This village is famous for its pottery that is decorated with flowers, birds and fish. In the village, there are small, stone houses, narrow side streets and cobbled roads.
  One of the most impressive iconostasis on the island can be found in the Church of Panaghia (Virgin Mary) and is dated 1744. This church is adjacent to the village’s central Church of Aghios Dimitrios.
  On the hill, just west of the village, stands the Byzantine castle of Apolihnon which was built 1440. The Genoese established the administrative mansion of the Mastihohoria (Mastic villages), a remarkable medieval monument which is still preserved and can easily be reached by visitors.
  Don’t miss... The Apolihnon Castle built in 1440 by the Genoese. The sign indicating the starting point of the trail is just a few feet from the ceramic pottery shops.
