Welcome to Pera Gialos & Hora
Visitors delight in the beauty of the old settlement of Hora looming above, its white houses spilling down the hillside beneath its impressive kastro (castle). For the original inhabitants of Hora, however, the upward migration was prompted by the threats of marauding pirates. These days Hora is a delightful maze to explore. Stroll around the hushed tangle of streets and climb up to the fort. You can then relax in the clutch of inviting kafeneia (coffee houses) and tavernas alongside the restored windmills that mark the village entrance.
