Kastro (castle)

Location: Chorio   

Kastro, the most picturesque quarter of Kimolos Cyclades: Kastro is actually the oldest and most picturesque quarter of Chorio, the capital village of Kimolos. Its name means Castle in Greek and this was the only inhabited area of Kimolos till the end of the 19th century, when houses started to be built outside the walls of the castle.

Kastro of Kimolos consists of two quarters, Mesa and Exo Kastro, that communicate with special arched doors (portares). The external doors of the houses are united and create fortifying walls, that used to protect the village in times of invasions and pirate attacks. Kastro is still inhabited today and it is located in the centre of Chorio.
