The city of Chios is often referred to as "Chora" to distinguish it from all over the island that shares its name.

By the medieval century the center of town was considered the castle. The time when genova was the ruler, began to develop a settlement outside the walls and in the late 17th century referred to as a city rich and pleasant, which reminded of Genova.

The present city has expanded out of the "Castle" and the port. After the devastating earthquake of 1881, the city virtually rebuilt in neoclassical style, although much of the waterfront and suburbs are more modern. The city center is concentrated between the harbor and the castle where visitors can encounter various museums, main shopping street "Aplotaria" and the central city garden.
