Home > Village


Following the road that goes thru the Kambohora going uphill in a south-western direction one reaches the large village of Agios Georgios Sikousis, built 12 kilometers away from the town of Chios on the top of the hill covered with olive trees.

At a short distance from the village lies the area of Makri with the ruins of a medieval castle and the remains of an old church. In the village there is a Byzantine church dedicated to Agios Georgios (Saint George). The church was once the chapel (katholikon) of the monastery built before the Nea Moni. The three venerable founders of the Nea Moni retired to this monastery to lead an ascetic life. It eventually became a dependency of the Nea Moni.

The location offers a splendid panoramic view to the east and to this natural platform the plain of Kampos spreads to the sea. The sight continues undisturbed all the way to the coast of Asia Minor. Leaning against the circular wall of an abandoned windmill looking towards the infinite this just feels a unique spiritual serenity.
