Anavatos is a village, with a story that nails anyone who visits him. It is 16 kilometers from the city of Chios, but access is difficult, as it is built on a conical rock 450 meters above sea level making a striking appearance. The residents benefited from the rock and built a wall around the village making it look like a real fortress. The houses were glued next to each other, made of stone, with wooden ceilings, low doorways and small arched windows. The village was abandoned after the catastrophic earthquake of 1881 and today it is a national monument for the island.
