The Basics

A popular starting point for walking tours, this square is named for Manto Mavrogenous, the Greek war heroine famous for her role in the Greek War of Independence. An unassuming statue in her honor stands at the heart of the square, while tourists and locals dine, stroll, and chat on all sides. The square is a staple for sightseeing and food tours and shore excursions in the old town, known locally as Chora or Hora, as well as an excellent spot for a meal of mezethes (Greek appetizers), washed down with island wine.
