The castle of Chora

Kythera (Chora)

The best preserved castle on the island. It was erected in the 13th century by the Veniers but it is very likely that it was built on the ruins of an old fort. It was restored in 1503 by the Venetians. It is made up of two parts, namely the inner castle and a more extensive outer wall that includes the area of Mesa Vourgos (“the inner town”). The inner castle includes the churches of Panagia Myrtidiotissa, Panagia Orfani, Pantokrator and Agios Ioannis. Also to be found here is the Historical Archive of Kythera located in the palace (the building that served as headquarters) as well as some nobleman houses. In Mesa Vourgos, in addition to the many nobleman houses, there are 14 churches. On the castle’s rockface, perched on the cliff, you will find a small yellow flower called “Sempreviva”, which means “that lives forever”. The view from the top is gorgeous.
