It remains architecturally homogeneous, with cobbled lanes sheltering of ship owners mansions from the island’s seventeenth-to-eighteenth-century heyday. Chora is one of the best-preserved Medieval settlements in the Aegean. Along with the Monastery and the Cave of Revelation, it has been added to UNESCO’S World Heritage List (OWHC). Numerous chapels, churches and monasteries around Chora contain beautiful icons and examples of local woodcarving.
