The village is built on a hill of Karkovouni or Halkovouni. In the area of Karkados, an ancient copper mine was found and it is likely that the name of the village comes from the word halkos (copper in English).
It is a small and quaint village that seems to be a continuation of Kalloni village. It is divided into two villages: “Kato” is near the valley and formed the original core of the village and “Pano”, situated in the east.
The church of Christ is known as “Little Pisa” among locals, as its bell tower is a bit sloping. You can enjoy nature, walking along the old road and arrive at Kalloni on foot.
Situated 13.5km off Chora (Tinos). Starting from Kionion coastal road, go straight on till you meet the junction at Ag. Marina and turn right towards Kalloni. You reach Karkados just after Kalloni.
