The Chora of Kythera is a wonderful blend of cultures with majestic views


As you enter Chora, the capital of Kythera, you see narrow streets with whitewashed houses, old mansions, Venetian buildings and others, built under British rule. In the quiet central square of Chora you’ll find the City hall, banks and other services, while on the central alleys there are many souvenir shops. Wandering around the streets of Chora and the Castle can be a great pleasure, there are many churches, beautiful gardens and the architecture of the buildings is quite interesting. Through the narrow streets which offer unique vistas, we walk to Mesa Vourgo, Chora’s medieval neighbourhood, with six churches built against the rock of the Venetian castle. You will definitely climb up to the Kastro (fortress) not only to see its interior but to admire the spectacular views of Chora, the Kapsali bay and the ‘Egg’ island. Worth visiting is Chora’s small folklore museum with a remarkably extensive collection. The Historical Archive of Kythera, located in the castle of Chora, is worth a visit as it keeps texts and documents from the 16th century. Also, a visit to the Archaeological Museum, located at the entrance of Chora, will take the visitor back in time. After this enchanting tour you can go downhill to Kapsali for a swim and lunch.
