Chora of Kythnos

The capital of the island and one of its two most picturesque settlements (the other being Dryopida). The settlement used to be called Messaria. It became the center of island life after pirates looted the Castle of Oria in the northern part of Kythnos in 1537, forcing its inhabitants to gather inland. In contrast to Dryopida, the architecture of Chora is much more reminiscent of the Cycladic islands. On every corner you will find a restaurant, bar, café, or church!
