Astypalaia Island, Greece

Until the 19th century, Chora (City) was the only settlement of the contemporary years of Astypalaia. The other settlements which exist today were created in the uncultivated spots of the island.

The biggest of these settlements are Livadi and Analypsi or Maltezana, created during the Italian years. Most of the island's life is concentrated in Chora.

The rugged coastline of Astypalaia is nothing more than an endless game between land and sea. In the middle of the island approximately, the land narrows so much that a strip just 10 m wide connects the two sections. The Steno, as it is known by locals, divides Astypalaia into the eastern Mesa Nisi (middle island) and the western 'Exo Nisi' (outer island).

Chora (City of Astypalaia) is the capital of the island. It is built on a hill which ends in a peninsula that creates two bays: the port of Pera Yalos and Livadi Bay. We can see on the hill's summit the shiny white steeples of the Evangelistria and Aghios Georgios churches standing out from within the dark castle walls that are made of local stone. All around the castle are little white houses with wooden balconies and blue-painted doors and windows and several churches and chapels among them.

Further adding to the beauty of Chora there are eight windmills on the hill's saddle. Walking on from there we come up with the traditional coffee shop and a little further we find the Town Hall from where two main streets begin and reach up into the Castle on the hill.
