Route : Mills-Daskalopetra-Langada-Kardamyla

 

Leaving our starting point, 1.5 km from the city of Chios we are in the area of ​​Tabakika. Tabakika was an old industrial zone of Chios. Today, four restored windmills dominate. These windmills, along with others in the same area, served the needs of the neighboring tanneries, workshops where leather was processed. Time available for photos.

Then we go to Daskalopetra. The area owes its name to the great teacher and famous poet of antiquity, Homer, where according to tradition he taught here. This is a beach, with small and large pebbles, crystal clear waters, next to the homonymous picturesque port with fishing boats and boats where you can get fresh fish, taste seafood with ouzo, or drink your coffee and drink, in one of the nearest beaches of the island. In Daskalopetra is the famous stone of Homer. Here, according to tradition, the beloved blind poet and creator of the epics of the Iliad and the Odyssey used to teach his students, playing the lyre with the sea stretching out under his feet.

We leave Daskalopetra and go to the Psycharis Monument. On the north side of Vrontados, on a beautiful hill above the sea, is the marble monument of the great Chian philologist and linguist Giannis Psycharis (1854 - 1929). Psycharis was born in Odessa, Russia, studied and taught as a teacher in Paris where he died and - at his request - was buried in Vrontados.

 

Our next destination is Langada. Lagada is a new village, and is one of the few on the island built near the sea. Most of its inhabitants are sailors who sail with their merchant ships in the seas of the whole world. The permanent residents of the village are mainly fishermen, while as tourism develops, more and more people are concerned with the delicacies that fishermen catch every day with their nets. Free time for food in the taverns of the area.


Then we go to Kardamyla. Kardamyla is a coastal village and is developed in a resort, preserving its traditional elements. Until the end of the last century, the inhabitants were exclusively engaged in agriculture and animal husbandry and gradually began to turn to shipping. Many people from Kardamyla come or were born, who belong to the large shipping circle of Greece, while a large number of the inhabitants are sailors.

Free time for coffee.

 


We leave Kardamyla and head to the country where our excursion comes to an end.
