Psara Guide

The Greek island of Psara lies in the Aegean Sea and is around 80 km to the north west of Chios and 150 km to the north east of Athens, the Greek capital. The island's landscape is characterised with hills and mountains, with Prophitis Ilias, at 640 meters above sea level, being the island's highest point. The island only has one small village which is also home to the island's harbour. Most of the island's residents work is linked to the sea, especially given that the island's interior is very mountainous and that tourism on the island is not particularly well established. However, popular sites on the island include the Archaeological Museum, the monastery of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary and its library and the Church of Aghios Nikolaos.

Psara and the East Aegean Islands in general are connected to the port of Piraeus. From Psara you can also visit the nearby Cycladic islands of Syros, Tinos, Mykonos, Andros etc.
