       The island is believed to have been settled by the Driopes in the 12th century BC, and their leader was called Kythnos. They were very well organised, and their society impressed even the likes of Aristotle.
The wells of the island were well known even in ancient years, and people from the mainland and the neighbouring island would come here to be cured from various diseases.
       Kitnos was conquered by the Macedonians in the 4th century BC, and the Romans cane in the 2nd century BC, using the island as a place for exiles. The Venetians came in the beginning of the 13th century, and were to rule here until the Turks invaded in the 16th century. This was a very unhappy time for the islanders, since they not only had to suffer constant pirate raids, but the plague as well.


     Loutra ("Baths")is a small village where there are hot wells, reputed for their healing waters since antiquity.
Chora is the island's capital, and is a picturesque village in medieval style. Here, you can visit the Church of Trinity
      Driopis is also a very pretty village, with typically winding streets and laid-back atmosphere. There is a small folklore museum here. In Kanala there is a small church dedicated to the Virgin Mary, with icons of healing powers.


Kolona Beach
    The beach is basically a narrow strip of land that connects Kythnos to the islet of Agios Loukas. However, it has a particular charm, partly due to its fine, golden sand and the sea lapping at both of its sides.
Loutra Beach
    Placed on the north east coast of Kythnos. This area is the main tourist resort of the island, at 5 km north of Chora village and attracts many visitors, not only because of its available facilities but also because of its thermal springs.
