Comment:Dear Ms Manolakas, Thank you for writing a comment on - Lagada page. You wrote that info about Kardamila is missing and that we don’t mention anything about Agia Markella. Both these pages already exist since the first day the Travel Guide came online. All villages and most of the beaches have a page in Chiosonline Travel Guide. CHIOSONLINE TEAM

Comment:You’re missing some major information on Chios. Agia Markella is the patron Saint of the island and the whole island closes down on her nameday. People from all over world go to Chios to visit the site. Also, the biggest celebration in Lagada is on August 29 for St. John the Baptist. Kythianda celebrates it in June. Big towns such as Kardamila are missing. Mesta is a must see village; it has two very beautiful churches and is built like a fortress. It was the only village to remain standing after the last devastating earthquake. Pirgi is another village that visitors like to visit. The most famous and best beach is Mavra Volia.
