Tilos Guide

The Greek island of Tilos is one of the Dodecanese group of islands in the Aegean Sea and is located halfway between the island of Kos and the island of Rhodes. The island's landscape is characterised by mountains, hills and plains where visitors can see around 400 varieties of herbs and flowers growing. The island also has a number of species of rare birds nesting there including Nightingales, Goldfinches, Bonelli's Eagle, Hawks, Herons and Bee-eaters, to name just a few. The whole island is a vast ecological park and is protected by international treaties.

The island's main town and port is Livadia where visitors will find the remains of a castle, deserted stone houses, Byzantine churches and paved streets. Although Livadia is the largest town, the island's capital is actually Megalo Chorio which is about 2 km from Livadia. A popular attraction on the island is the beautiful abandoned 15th century monastery of Agios Panteleimon which has some interesting icons. Also worth visiting is the Castle of the Knights which is where the Knight of St. John were based during the 15th century.
