Island Ikaria Travel & Tourism Guide

Kampos


Kampos lies in the northern part of the island, west of Evdilos. The village is built in a beautiful plain, "kampos" in Greek, with ample water from whence its name. The gentle lake abounds with reeds, thickets, and moss. The Voutsidis river flowing down to the shore, the enchanting beaches and well looked after houses old and new spread over the small valley, and the small yet picturesque square, with the traditional coffee shops, all fascinate the visitor. But apart from its scenic beauties, the settlement of Kampos is of particular historical and archaeological interest. The remains of the ancient capital of the island, Oinoe, and the hilltop of Agia Irini, with the imposing old church and the grandiose remnants of a Byzantine Odeon associated with thousands of legends and traditions of the island, are unerring witnesses of the history of this land. The Kampos Archaeological Museum located also on the hilltop of Agia Irini is well worth a visit. The local beach is also a popular place to swim and enjoy the seaside.
