Avgonyma, Chios


On the main road of central-western Chios, after passing Karyes, on our route to the west, in a distance of 16 Km from Chios town, on a rocky hill, there is the graphic village of Avgonyma. The houses are built of stone and the residents are too few. During the sunset, the view of the Aegean sea and of Psara, the medieval observation post and the clean bay of Elinda are unique motives for the modern traveler. These are excellent local delicacies in the village taverns. There is a unique pine-covered forest which is the most important of Chios and which embraces the villages of Avgonyma and Anavatos, the Mystras of Chios.

Comment:We have been to Avgonyma several times during our 15 years in Chios. It is a beautiful village and a nice place to stop for lunch or why not dinner with a sunset like we did now in 2005! It was a really nice experience!
