The village of Anavatos is a part of the island full of history, art and legends, and is considered to be a village - a monument of medieval architecture. His story sets the visitor and the Chians themselves. Anavatos village, 22 km from the city and 6 km from Avgonima, and access to the village can be done by car or motorbike. The village is built on a 450-meter conical rock above the sea which makes the view unbelievable and, at the same time, the unique appearance of the village. The then inhabitants of the village built a wall round the village making it look like a real fort or fortress. The houses were glued side by side with stones. Their ceilings were wooden and with low doors and small windows. At the time of the massacre in 1822 the village was abandoned by the Chians and even the women and children in order to escape the captivity fell from the cliff. The upper part of the village has been designated an archaeological site and the Archaeological Service has undertaken its restoration and maintenance. The village today has only one resident and the houses as well as the three-storey building that housed the olive press and the church of Taxiarchis are well preserved. The view is enchanting and unique we would say in the Aegean Sea.
