Nenitouria

Located 65 kilometers north of the town of Chios and a mere 20 kilometers from the village Volissos is Nenitouria. The four communities, Psaros, Kosmados, Hametos and Antrahlias have been united to form one single village, that is, Nenitouria. When entering the village, visitors are impressed by the dale covered with plane trees and large stones. In the wintertime, these stones drown in the gushing waters that brush across their surface. These are the Amani’s waters.

The mountainside cradles the village thereby enhancing its resemblance to an amphitheater. Most homes are in ruins and uninhabited. Although the residents’ homes are scattered across three communities (the fourth community, Antrahlias, is abandoned), the local cafeteria doesn’t fail to bring them together since this is their meeting point. Olive trees, pine trees, plane trees, oak trees and bushes surround the village.

The picturesque beach of the village is called Aghios Georghios (St. George) Krasas named after the old chapel located on the beach and dedicated to the Saint. It is approximately five kilometers from the village.

Philip Argenti, into his book “The Costumes of Chios. Their Development from the XVth to the XXth Century” published in London on 1953 has included a traditional custom of the village
