This abandoned village of Horio was the old capital of the island. Below the Castle of the Knights on the hill of Agios Nikolaos this ancient settlement hosts traces of old stone houses, parts of the  cemetary along with several churches. Around the area of Horio, the vaulted church of Panagia Horiani, and the Agia Triada with the Agios Konstantinos Monasteries are still preserved well.
