A seaside village, built amphitheatrically, with scattered houses and the typical soccer court 5m x 5m just above the sea. The name suggests that it is a fertile plain (='kampos'), with lots of water. Great view, lush place.
Under today's village are found the ruins of the ancient capital of the island, Oinoe. Kampos was inhabited from the Early Bronze Age.
Open to visitors, the current archaeological site also contains the ruins of the conservatory, an early Byzantine secular building, also known as the 'Palaces'. Also worth visiting is the post-Roman aqueduct with important ruins of baths, reservoirs, water mains and drains.
The Kampos archaeological site was recently extended and mapped.
Access to the village is from the main Agios Kirykos - Evdilos - Armenistis road.
Tip! Don't miss visiting the archaeological museum and the church of Agia Irini.
