Hello and welcome in ChiosRadio.gr
Today I would like to present to you our special places for this week “The Holy Shrine of St. Marcella”. This temple is located in Volissos – really beautiful and charming village on the north of the Island (40 kilometers northwest from Chios city).
Imagine that: one week, over 100 sailing boats and 4 sailing races from island to island. What I am talking about? The Aegean Regatta 2014, one of the biggest annual sailing races in Greece! And the best part is that we, the European volunteers from Chios, were a part of it!
Agios Minas is a monastery located on the Eastern part of the island, about 9 kilometers from island’s main city, Chios. Neochori, the village in which the monastery is located, has the most tourists’ accommodations on the island and lots of tavernas to choose from, but that’s not the only thing that makes it a great place to spend your holiday in.
Living on Chios island for a while and being busy with today's problems, you can sometimes get lost in plain reality and forget about its majestic history and heritage. So, take your comfy shoes, 2 euro for a ticket and a notebook to make notes and let's go to the Archaeological Museum of Chios!
