Alonissos Chora

Information about Chora

Chora Village Alonissos: This lovely village was the old capital of Alonissos before the major earthquake occured in 1965 and destroyed the entire settlement. At that time all the inhabitants deserted the village and moved near the coast where they built Patitiri, the new capital of Alonissos.

Chora is located 4 kilometres west of the port and capital, built amphitheatrically on the hill slopes around the natural bay. A lot of the houses in Palio Horio have been damaged. Greeks, Germans and English managed to restore some of them and today we can see them as cafes, local shops or even guest houses.

The old part of Alonissos is an idyllic and calm place with whitewashed old houses, narrow climbing paved streets and stairs leading to the top of the hill. There is a lovely traditional cafe offering excellent Greek sweets and the most terrific view.

Many restored houses with flowered balconies, add a particularly joyous and aesthetic touch to the village. Some parts of the old Byzantine walls restored by the Venetians to fortify the city have survived the passing of time.

The walk inside Palio Horio is a real delight and some of the surviving Byzantine churches like the chapel of Agio Anargyroi are worth visiting. At the church of Agios Andreas are also housed the headquarters of the International Academy of Homeopathic, giving information and solutions for any kind of health problems.

The lovely tiny square opposite the beautiful Christ Church is the ideal place to relax and enjoy a coffee under the shade of the trees.This fantastic village can be reached by local bus or through a delightful donkey path walk starting from Patitiri, zigzagging through various trees, and offering a wonderful view.

In Casa Milos, we believe that modern men and women should seek for inspiration and equilibrium looking back in the past. Milos, which in Greek stands for the windmill, is one of the dearest historical icons of the island’s history since the 19th century.
