Chios Mini Guide

The island of Chios is one of the biggest off the Greek mainland. It also gives its name to the Chios strait, a thin stretch of water which separates Chios from Turkey. It is part of a chain of islands in the North Aegean Sea. The island has many tourist attractions and much history, including the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Nea Moni, an old monastery. There is also another important archaeological site known as Teacher's Rock.

Although Chios has an old town, much of it was in fact damaged during a serious earthquake at the end of the 19th century. However classicists may still want to visit Vrontados in the north of Chios which is where Homer, who wrote the Illiad, was born.

The island is located in the Aegean Sea which means it is surrounded by beautiful beaches and crystal clear waters. According to old legends this was an island of pine trees and snakes, so there is much there to explore. The island has many festivals, often linked to the religious calendar but they go wild on the 11th of November in the capital as they mark the anniversary of gaining independence from Turkey.
