  The village is named after "Pitys" (meaning "pine" in Ancient Greek), thus testifying its antiquity. Besides, one of the names of Chios island during Antiquity was "Pityousa" (meaning "the one who has pines"). The modern village of Pityos is quite small and is mainly inhabited by cattle raisers and a few farmers. The village administratively belongs to Municipality of Kardamyla and lies in the middle of the road connecting the highway Chios - Volissos (21st km) and the highway Chios - Kardamyla (20th km). It is built in a plateau of the mountainside of mount Oros, in a unique environment that combines the mountain and the plain. There are an old Byzantine tower, a windmill and a few churches. You can stay in a newly constructed hostel, a renovated old stone edifice, and you can also enjoy local meat and local mezedes at the tavern of the village.
