Welcome to "Frourio" !

The castle of Chios, “Frourio” (fortress), is one of the few in Greece that are perched along the sea and is deeply seeped in history of Chios, spanning from the Byzantine era to the present day. The castle was most likely founded around the 9th century and has since played an important role in the history of the island..

Under the Treaty of 1346 the authority over the island was ceded to the Genoese and in 1566 the island was invaded by the Ottomans and absorbed into the Ottoman Empire. It remained under the Ottoman rule till the liberation in 1912. Today, the fortress “Frourio” remains a living cell of Chios town, offering its visitors a tranquil haven of calm and relaxation.
