Mikro Chorio

Mikro Chorio is a beautiful abandoned village on the island of Tilos, well worth the visit, probably the highlight of my visit to Tilos. It is weird to walk around in the now silent walkways and to admire the mill stones that can be found here and there as well as the fortifications that date back to the era of the Knights of St John. A kind of eery feeling grabs you, as if the place was haunted and the people had been driven away. In actual fact the village was gradually abandoned in the 1960s and now only a couple of churches are maintained and taken care of. There is also a bar available that operates during the summer months.
