The Abandoned Village of Horio

The Abandoned Village of Horio

The last residents left the area in 1970. The first building you will see coming from the old path is the country church of Agioi Anargyroi surrounded by olive trees. Following, there is the church of Sotiras and the old school which is preserved in a better condition. The small monasteries of Agia Triada (Holy Trinity), Agios Konstantinos and the vaulted church of Panagia Horiani, with the enormous cypress, are preserved all around Horio. These pilgrimages remain irrefutable witnesses of the bloom that the settlement once knew.

It is worth observing the isodomic walls that are located in various ruined houses, the scattered oldest architectural parts in the cemetery, the sarcophagi and the Doric capital in Agios Konstantinos.

Two thrones carved on the rock with the inscription ‘DIOS EKATIS’ were found a bit further above Horio.
