KIMOLOS

Kimolos is a small island of the Cyclades Archipelago in the Aegean Sea, very close to the island of Milos. The predominant color in the island is white because of all the chalk produced here.

The necropolis found at Ellinika, in the south west of the island, and the remnants of the ancient city of Kimolos on the islet of Agios Andreas are testimony to habitation as far back as the Mycenean period.

Much later in the Middle Ages, pirates used the well concealed caves of Kimolos as places of refuge. In general terms the history of the island has been that of Milos.

From the quiet harbor of Psathi a road leads uphill to the capital of Kimolos or Hora, where almost all the islanders live. The houses in authentic Cycladic style are clustered around the nucleus of the castle, which is divided into two settlements, the Messa Kastro (inner castle) and Exo Kastro (outer castle). In the former the outer walls of the houses form a defensive wall with loopholes for windows and four entrance gates.

The overall impression is of a painting in white against a blue background. Flowers are grown in all the courtyards and the alleyways are cobbled.

Prassa in the north of the island is where the chalk is mined. There are also medicinal springs with sulphurous waters.

In general the island has superb beaches and would be an ideal spot for those who are fond of quiet and solitude in an idyllic setting.

Area 36 sq. km.
Distance from Piraeus 88 n. miles.


How to get there:
By ferry from Piraeus
By caique from Milos (Apolonia)
