Ioulida is the largest town and the capital of the island. Only 5 km from the main port, it should be part of your itinerary. The inhabitants call it "Chora", but its correct name, used in its golden age, is Ioulis. It is a picturesque, typical Cycladic township with 600 inhabitants, a very interesting archeological museum, a prehistorical stone lion and a Venetian castle. Ioulis is well worth a visit. It is pleasant to stroll along its narrow streets.
