Reviewed July 10, 2012

an old village, abandoned when the wells dried out. the inhabitants left their houses, but brought their roofs, and left for Megalo Chorio. Excellent and exciting.

“Magic !!”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

In the daytime it's only grey ruins but in the nightime it's absolutely magic. The abandont village is lit up with lights and the music bar is open and plays great music. Lift your head and above you the sky is like a carpet of stars. Loved it !!!

“The "haunted" bar...”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

The place is adeserted village, consisting of 10-20 ruined houses, one of which is the main bar, while the others are lightened from the inside, giving the impression of a haunted village. The bar opens around 11:00pm and there is a free bus from the port, that gets you there and picks you up every hour (or something like that). It is worth visiting it just for the spectacle, even if the music (various) is not your style.

“A genuine ghost town”
Reviewed October 21, 2011

Mikro horio was abandoned many years ago. Its inhabitants left the place for a better life.
One of the most important sights to see on the island of tilos.
Dont miss it.
During the high season there is a night bar there runned by the mayors family, from what we heared.
It kind of spoils the whole idea of the deserted village.
