All sightseeing in Tilos

By location:
Archaeological Collection
Location: Megalo Chorio

The Archaeological Collection of Tilos exhibits pieces of classical vessels, small statues, ancient inscriptions and sculptures from the Classical and the Hellenistic Times. These findings were excavated on the island, mostly in the valley of Lakia, close to Megalo Chorio.


Charkadio Cave is located in the centre of the island, about 2 km south of Megalo Chorio. This cave is of great paleontological importance, as this is where the first fossiled teeth of dwarf elephants were found. The findings are hosted in the Paleontological Collection in Megalo Chorio.
