Megalo Chorio  

 


Megalo Chorio - Tilos (Greece)

Megalo Chorio. Megalo Chorio is the capital of the Greek island of Tilos. It is located seven kilometers (4 mi) north of Livadia, the port of Tilos.

Megalo Chorio literally means large village. It is located at the foot of a rocky hill, topped by a Venetian castle. Between the castle and Megalo Chorio you can see the ruins of an abandoned village. This deserted village used to be called Mikro Chorio, meaning “Small Village.” Mikro Horio was abandoned in the 19th century when the inhabitants, freed from the fear of pirates, settled lower and closer to the sea.

The mountain on which the castle is built is called Aghios Stefanos. Here you can see the ruins of an ancient Greek city from the fourth century BC. The ancient temple of Dias Polieos and Athína Poliados once stood here. Within the walls of the castle are ruins of the Taxiarchis church built in the 14th century.
