Kythera is rich in towns and villages, each with their distinct characteristics


Kythera is a unique blend of various cultures with influences from the Aegean and the Ionian Seas and through the centuries the island has developped its own character and style. With beautiful alternate landscapes, hospitable people and a mild climate, Kythera combines a scenery of sea and mountains with imposing castles, picturesque churches and monasteries, archaeological sites and rich vegetation attracting more and more visitors every year. Although Kythera is a mid-size island, it has many villages, many of them in the hinterland, most built in the traditional manner. Chora is the island’s capital, a stunning village on the north of Kythera, with mansions, quaint alleys and a big Venetian fortress with panoramic views. In the center of the island is the picturesque Potamos, one of the largest villages with houses influenced by the architecture of the Peloponnese and neoclassical elements. Next to Potamos is the great Byzantine castle town of Paleochora built on a steep rock and in the center of the island to the west is the quaint Mylopotamos village.
