Amazing place. We walked around for ages and never saw another person. Great views, interesting history. We hiked from Lavadia and had a fantastic day out. We were told by the locals to go back, after dark, and visit the only bar there. Great for star viewing.

Drove up here on our scooter - quite a long walk from Livadia if you're unfit like me! Well worth a visit but probably best to go in the cooler part of the day

A picturesque abandoned village which must be visited if you are on Telos island. There is a nice panigyri (feast) every August 14th at the church of the village. There is also a very nice bar but, unfortunately, the music it plays is really bad.

This is a must if you go to Tilos. It's quite spooky at times but it is well worth it. It has a certain medieval feel to it somewhat enhanced by the absence of people. There are plenty of goats though...

We rented a motorbike and drove up here during the day. It was really cool and well worth the trip. Bring water, it gets very hot. The view is amazing as well.

I never been before in a place like that that you can see a fully empty semi destroyed village. A walk around is really amazing and travels you back in time. Don't miss it!!

Fascinating vilage on the top of a hill. Abandoned in 1965 and now in ruins apart from buildings restored for a late night bar, and also the chapel and church. Mill stones still there. Great views.

Small, but pretty ltown, and there is a good bus service from Livadia .There are restaurants, and the views over the sea are spectacular. We only ate there once, but a walk around made us think we should have gone there more. There is, apprentlly, a beach where you can shed your clothing, can't remember the name, but then it... More
