Karyes is a beautiful amphitheatrically built village, 6 Km in the northwest of the town of Chios. In the village there is plenty of cool water. In the center of the village, 10 minutes by bus or taxi from Chios town, under the coolness of the plane and walnut trees the visitors can enjoy the local delicacies along with ouzo or drink a Greek coffee. The festivals of the Churches of Theotokos and of St. Marcella during the summer are always crowed. The residents are breeders, merchants, construction workers and civil servants. There are also lots of immigrants who never forget their home town. There are 700 residents in Karyes.
Following the road leading to Nea Moni we face the top of Penthodes with the Monastery of Saint Mark. Inside the Monastery there is the burial ground of Parthenios, founder of the Monastery.
