Chora Village in Kythnos
Information About Chora
Chora Village Kythnos: A classic Greek island's town, complete with white houses, colorful flowers and pristine churches, Chora town on Kythnos is extremely picturesque.
The narrow streets and quaint little squares have an old world charm to them, which when coupled with the quite modern and well equipped restaurants, form an unbeatable combination. Some of the more famous churches which warrant a visit are the church of Agia Triada, church of Agios Panteleimonas, church of Metamorfosis and also the church of Ioannis.
An interesting fact about these churches was that they were for both Catholic as well as Orthodox pilgrims, with the Catholics praying on the left side of the church, while the latter use the right side. The Agia Triada (Holy Trinity) church is the oldest of them all, while the church of Agios Prodromos is visited by locals and tourists for a glimpse of its coveted 17th century screen.
One particularly interesting attraction near Hora is Loutra, located just 4.5 km from the town. It is famous for its hot spas which are believed to have healing waters, attracting hundreds of visitors at all times.
