Kato Kleisma



“ Unexpected lush... “

Secrets

  • Kato Kleisma is a rural village at one end of the fertile meadows of Komi.
  • The name must be from the Italian word "Chiuso" (=Closed, fenced) or from the archaic verb
    "clino" (=bend) describing its structure. 
  • The area is green and there is abundant water, a rarity for Tinos.
  • In Kato Kleisma, findings of the Cycladic period were traced and residues of a Christian chapel
    was found where the church of St. Anastasia was erected.
  • In the village there were two mills that have been abandoned and only their ruins are left.
  • The village was originally built in a different location, further south and near where the village
    entrance is, today.
