The Monastery of Evangelistria may be reached from the town of Livadi by mule path. It sites at the islands southern shore. In the north, Aghios Georgos Bay below the town of Ano Meria has a nice beach as well as the nearby beaches of Ampeli and Livadaki accessable by foot after alighting at the bus stops above. Ano Meria also has the Ecology and Folk Museum (open daily: 5-8, Tel: 41387). There are fabulous sunsets at Ano Meria, and on a clear day you can see all the way to Crete. Ano Meria is actually a string of farming hamlets surrounded by terraced fields.

To the NE of Hora lies Paliokastro and the ruins of castle fortifications and the ancient city.

Built upon the site of The Ancient Temple of Artemis is the Church of the Panagia with its blessed icon.

Drinking and Dining

There are many good places to eat. O Kritikos is recommended for local specialties. Try The Folegandros for a huge selection of dishes and Pounta for nouvelle cuisine in its lovely outdoor area. There's also a busy nightlight in the Hora area for party-seekers.
