Ιt is a medieval village of the 14th century and is located 31 km South West of the town of Chios, 6 km from the Pirgi on the way to Chios. The architecture is equivalent to Mesta but with obvious changes during the passage of time. It is also proclaimed as a preservable monument. The houses are built in such a way that the outer walls are conjoined, so that anyone facing the village will see a fortress with no visible openings, except for one door that allows people in and out of the village. Tourist facilities such as traditional apartments are situated within Olympi village. Some of the old traditional houses have been renovated and turned into guesthouses, to give visitors a feel of the traditional charm.The nearest beaches to Olympi are Didima, Mavra Volia and Agia Dynami.
