Description

Ios (Ίος) is a hilly island with cliffs down to the sea on most sides, situated halfway between Naxos and Santorini. The Port of Ios (Gialos) is at the head of the Ormos harbour in the north-west.

According to ancient tradition, Homer’s mother was from Ios, and he himself was buried there.
