Kimolos Guide

Located in the Cycladese group of islands, the Greek island of Kimolos lies in the Aegean Sea, just to the north of its nearest neighbour, the island of Milos. Separating the two islands is a channel that is around 1 km wide. The island's only town is called Chorio is sits on a hill on the west side of the island. The buildings of Chorio are typical of the architectural style of the Aegean which gives off a lovely old-world charm. Houses with white washed walls and blue painted windows located along narrow cobbled streets provide the town with a deep sense of tranquillity. There are a number of places of interest in the town including the Archaeological Museum, which is opposite the Metropolitan Church of Panagia Odigitria. Contained within the museum are exhibits and artefacts showing the island's history, which includes vessels and utensils dating back to the early 7th century BC.
