Welcome to Ios!
A typical Cycladic capital, picturesque and white, is built on the site of the ancient city, from which today only the temple of Pythian Apollo is preserved, near the church of Agia Catherine. At the top of the hill is the chapel of Agios Nikolaos and around it are the ruins of the medieval castle (1397). The windmills, narrow streets and the old settlement, which has been preserved, retain its picturesque nature. The nearest and best beach is that of Mylopotas, which has water sports equipment and is 3 km from Chora.
In Ios you will find picturesque taverns to bars, pubs and discotheques, where entertainment lasts until morning. Every May, the “Homeria” takes place, with the Pancycladic Student Theatrical Meeting, exhibitions and sports competitions, and concerts and theatrical performances are held throughout the summer at the Odysseus Elytis Open Theater.
