General Information

Schinousa has two settlements, Chora and Mesaria.

The settlement of Chora is built on a high ground on the mainland of the island and is located 1,2km from the port.

In the past, the island suffered many damages from pirate attacks. For this reason, the people built the village of Panagia, as they call the Chora , named after the church of Panagia Akathis, on a high ground to have  better visibility towards the sea. The houses are built according to the traditional Cycladean architecture.

The second settlement , Mesaria, is as picturesque and fascinating. Here one can visit the church of Evagelistria, which is 3km from Chora.

Schinousa is small promising paradise, awaiting to be explored.
