Anavatos is one of the curiosities of our island and the place that every volunteer has to visit at least one time.

The byzantine tower-village situated (Map) in the central part of the island, not far away from our place it’s impressively amazing because of its location on the top of the rock at the end of a cliff. Although it is a deserted village, it still preserves its history and magical atmosphere.

The settlement, which is now almost completely deserted, a medieval castle stands on top of the village and developed in the shape of an amphitheater with the acropolis at the edge of the ravine. Quite a lot of the settlement’s narrow fronted homes are preserved to give a unique picture of a ghost town in a wild evocative environment.
