The castle of Chios is located in the heart of the town. There are shops and restaurants inside it. Some people live there also. Perfect for a walk

Nice place to be. There are cafes inside the castle. You can eat and drink im a very silent place. Peaceful neighbourhood. Its very nice to walk around the houses. Very narrow street. So no traffic. Hictoric buildings and church.

I visited the castle after closing hours, so I cannot definetely say if there is more to visit inside (such as a museum). From the outside, it is a common medieval castle, that worths visiting, but without anything special.

The Chios Castle is absolutely amazing. It is still inhabited and the feeling you get the moment you step your foot on it is truly unique!
