Vryokastro

Vryokastro is the most important archaeological site on Kythnos. It is located in the western part of the island, between the beaches of Episkopi and Apokrousi. It also includes the islet of Vryokastraki, which used to be connected to the mainland. Findings from the ancient port have been discovered submerged between Vryokastro and the islet. The area of ​​Vryokastro was inhabited for hundreds of years, from the 10th century BC to the 7th century AD. The systematic archaeological excavation of the area was begun in 2002 by the University of Thessaly. Archaeologists have identified the citadel of the ancient city, two necropolises, public buildings, underground tanks, an aqueduct, and the sunken port.
