Lagada is 16 Km far from Chios
town, in the northeast side of the island. It has an amazing natural beauty
as the scenery combines the sea with the mountains. The village is amphitheatrically
built, ending to the homonymous gulf.
At the village square is the church of Agios Ioannis. But the traditional
local festive is celebrated on 17th of September and it is sacred to the memory
of Agia Sofia, a seaside church.
Moreover this village includes and some other settlements: the one
named Agrelopos, the abandoned area of Kydianta,
and Kila. The visitor can enjoy traditional food, fresh fishes and other delicacies
in one of the seaside taverns and in the afternoon you can have a cap of coffee
with your friends at the cafeterias along the coast. The view from there is magnificent!
