    Chora is a picturesque town on the small island of Folegandros in the southern Cyclades. The cliffside, medieval town is closed off to traffic, making it a peaceful place to wander, though it would be very difficult to get lost. Chora is filled with small white buildings, beautiful flowers, tiny churches, and numerous tavernas. At night, the center of town fills with people, creating a surprisingly lively atmosphere for such a small place. A true gem!

Description

Folegandros Town (Chora) is one of the oldest traditional medieval towns in the Cyclades; the buildings stand close to one another creating the external wall of the castle (kastro). The Chora, closed to car and motorcycle traffic, has a unique centre of three squares in a row, with trees under which to enjoy a drink or a bite to eat in a quiet, romantic atmosphere. It is no exaggeration to ... read more
describe Chora as one of the most aesthetically picturesque, traditional villages of its kind. The view is said to be second only to that of Santorini, though fans of Plaka on the island of Milos might argue. The Kastro is a medieval fortress at the top of the town which dates from the 13th Century.
