Kambos in Ikaria

Kambos, a few kilometres west of Evdilos, was in ancient times the capital of Ikaria. The village name was Oinoe, which means wine, at that time. Today, there are unfortunately not many traces of antiquity. But the village offers one of the island's oldest churches (Agia Irini) and a small museum.

There are also a few tavernas, cafes and pensions. Below the village lies a decent beach which is also called Kambos.


Shortly after Kambos (on the road to Armenistis) is a winding road leading up to the villages of Pigi, Maratho, Frantato, Dafni and Petropouli. The beautiful distance ends at the main road that leads to Manganitis.

If you're going to Manganitis, this route is preferable. Not least to see the strange little monastery of Theoktistis near the village of Pigi. I can almost guarantee that you have never seen anything like it, so you must go here.
