Kallimassia Community - Overview

Kallimasia is one of the island's largest mastic villages, the capital of the Municipality of Ionia and the first village which visitors encounter 13 kilometers from the town of Chios. It is built on a plain where deep green vegetation and olive trees prevail. Inside the village, one will find the remains of medieval towers, the well-preserved and impressive churches and the lively village squares. The Women's Handicraft Association has managed to preserve the area's customs in addition to customs found in other villages of the island. Also located in the village is a Cultural Center. In the surrounding area, there is the nunnery of Panaghia Plakidiotissa which was built on the remains of an earlier nunnery dated to the 16th century. The area of Aghios Emilianos, one kilometer from Kallimasia, has a magnificent beach for swimming.
