Chora Village Folegandros: The traditional setllement of Chora is located at an altitude of 200 meters above sea level. The nearest port Karavostasi is also close by and is a mere 3-4 km away.
Chora is conspicuous by its meandering streets and alleyways. There are many squares which again are distinct trait of Folegandros and the Cyclades islands. The houses are whitewashed and rather well maintained.
In fact, Chora happens to be one of the oldest medieval towns in the whole of Cyclades. The edifices are all built close to one another, thereby making the exterior wall of the castle (Kastro). One must note that the Chora is out of bounds to motor vehicles, and has an exclusive hub of three squares.
There are plenty of shaded areas provided by the trees and one can truly unwind here. Chora is one of the most picturesque villages in the island of Folegandros. For those interested in short excursions, one can go up North to Chrissospilia, which is in close proximity to Chora. Here one can marvel at stalactite cave which is taken care of by the Archaeological Service.
