Hora is the island's capital and lies on its south-west side. It is built on the slopes of a hill on the top of which stands an imposing
castle and the ruins of an ancient city. Hora maintains many traditional Cycladic architectural elements. It has pretty white houses, circular terraces, arched doorways, narrow picturesque alleyways, and white staircases. Of particular note are the churches of the Assumption of the Virgin, Holy Cross, and St Nicholas.
