The Old Village of Alonissos is a tangle of narrow streets and steep stairs; local stone-built houses are surrounded by climbing vines and flower gardens. Located in a privileged part of the island, the view from the Old Village is amazing. Visitors can enjoy the view over a large part of the landscape, as well as the sea surrounding the island from both sides. Visitors are welcome to enjoy the view from local taverns and cafés that are open all day long in summertime. The Old Village (Chora) used to be the capital of the island; nowadays, it's a place with remarkable architectural monuments, such as the medieval castle overlooking the Aegean Sea.
