Nimborio  

Nimborio - Halki (Greece)

Nimborio. The picturesque capital of the Greek island of Halki is Nimborio. This city is located in the southeast portion of the island, in a small cove which is closed by an island called Nisaki. The bay is surrounded by barren mountains.

The charming houses of Nimborio are built against the slopes of the hills. They are colorful houses in pastel shades of mostly pink, salmon and ocher. The houses are all similar, two or three floors and roofs made of ceramic tiles.

About 250 inhabitants live in the village, and make their living on fishing and agriculture in the offseason and on tourism in the summer.

The former capital of Halki was actually Chorio, located high next to the castle. After the inhabitants were free of the threat of pirates around the year 1850, they moved to the capital to the current location and founded Nimborio.
