Kastro, the oldest quarter of Chora, is the most picturesque part of this small town. Katergo and Agali are among the best beaches in Folegandros, with truly relaxing landscape and crystal waters.
Kastro is the most picturesque quarter of Chora. This is the Medieval town of Chora that used to be surrounded by strong castle walls. Today the walls haven't survived and the town has spread around Kastro.
