logo Tilos

Megalo Horio

There used to be the ancient capital of Tilos and later on the powerful castle of the Knights of Saint John. By the early 19th century the whole population stayed within the walls due to the fear of the pirates. Now the village expands amphitheatrically at the foot of the steep hill of Agios Stefanos maintaining elements of the traditional Dodecanese architecture intact. It is characterized by the whitewashed stone houses with the blue windows, the narrow streets, the stair landings, the flower filled gardens and the warm hospitality of the kind locals.

It is the current port of Tilos, the place where all the ferries, fishing boats and private yachts moor. The village maintains its traditional style built among the bay and a fully-green (due to the springs) valley. See the colonial style building of the Police station built during the Italian occupation on the port and visit the nearby church of Agios Nikolaos. Walking in the streets of the village you will find many rooms to let, taverns, ouzeri, and cafés overlooking the sea.
