The picturesque villages of Aspro Chorio (white village) and Drios
Aspro Horio is located at the valley over the beach of Lolantonis and a little further down, there is Drios, which combines the mountain and the sea. Here, you will find beautiful taverns on the beach and in the village and a view of the big blue of the sea.
Drios is located 25 kilometers from Parikia and it has a long history. During the ancient times it was Paros' port because there was water to supply the battleships and the merchant ships with. You can still see the parallel grooves, which were carved by the ships that were dragged out of the sea. According to another version, the grooves were made by the wheeled wagons, in which they used to transport the Parian marble to load it on ships.
Drios is rich in vegetation and it has a beautiful beach with nice taverns over it.
At the village you can visit the ancient ship sheds (places where they used to shelter ships) and the cave of demons with stalagmites and stalactites, the lakes of Drios etc.
