CHORA AND POTHIA AREA


Chora was the original capital of Kalymnos, set back from the sea and marauding pirates, with an easily defendable castle at its centre. There are three developed cliffs around Chora, but only Dodoni ever sees any visitors. Also covered here is the small solitary crag of St George to the south of Pothia. There is quite a bit of undeveloped rock in the area for the keen new router.
