The Oinousses are a small cluster of islands. The largest of these islands is Oinoussa which gave the name to the whole group , while the other uninhabited islets are : Panagia, Vatos, Pontikonisi, Avloni, Archondoniso and Prasonisia- the “ twins” green islands ,one of which has the Lighthouse.
They lie north east of Chios and the whole surface of this island cluster is of 14 square km. Oinoussa, because of its location in the north of the Aegean , between Chios and the Turkish shore arose the interest of the Turks who used it as a basis. The Venetians did the same. The only settlement of Oinoussa, which is also a municipality, stands out due to its beautiful mansions that belong to the captains there and due to its two storey stone houses which give this little town an aristocratic air.
