Schinoussa Chora

General information

Chora Village Schinoussa: The main village of Schinousa is Chora, also called Panagia, which is situated uphill from the port. It is not visible from the sea as it is hidden by the hill. This is the reason why pirates preferred this village and used to assemble here to plan their next raid.

The village offers a spectacular view of the sea and surrounding areas. The road leading to Chora from the port is asphalted as opposed to other roads of the island that are basically small paths.

From Chora you can walk to every beach on the island on small trails and donkey paths, as it is located right at the heart of the island.

Chora is a small and charming village with a single street. Here you can find a bakery, mini markets, taverns, cafes, a pastry shop and a health centre. It distinguishes for its traditional architecture and the charming environment. The village is perfect for morning walks along the scenic trails or for watching the brilliant sunset.

This village also hosts the church of Panagia Akathi, the protector of the island. Many women have taken their names (Akathi) from this church.
