Olympi (Ολύμποι) is a 14th century Medieval village in southern Chios. To me, it’s Mesta-lite. It has a maze of narrow alleys to wander through and a few buildings with the xysta that made nearby Pyrgi famous.
An important feature of Olympi is the gate that served as the original entrance to the village. It was the only way in or out during Medieval times. All of the houses during that era had windows that faced into the village, so an outsider would see it as a huge fortress with walls rather than a village.
In the center of the village is a large defensive building where villagers used to take refuge. There are a couple of restaurants located there now, making it an interesting place to have a meal.
