Kimolos - Echinousa

  • Print
Kimolos island has one main town, called Chorio and some smaller settlements that are inhabited mainly in the summer, while in the winter few of them have residents: Psathi (port), Goupa, Kara, Prasa,Aliki, Bonatsa and Dekas. Many of the permanent residents of the island are people who, upon their retirement they returned to their island of origin, free from obligations, to get a new way of life in their little paradise, spending their time with farming, stockbreeding or fishing.

Young men are mainly involved with the mines of Kimolos and Milos, they are craftsmen, merchants, fishermen, seamen and almost all of them farmers.

At Chorio there is no great central square but several smaller ones like: Theoskepasti, Giorgila (with a well), Kambos (where the Children's Playground is), while, the largest one, at the School, has beautiful view and is ideal for someone to watch the full moon rise in August!

There is a new Archaeological Museum and a Folklore Museum inside the castle area.
