Located at the northern tip of Ios near the village of Pano Kambos is the reputed site of Homer's Tomb. The Ios islanders are very proud of the connection and there is a bust of Homer in the main port. On May 15 each year they hold a 'Homeria' festival to celebrate the link to the great poet.
But the connection isn't particularly strong, the main one being that Homer's mother, Clymene was from Ios. Whatever, the site is not great to look at, just the rock entrance to a tomb, and you need transport to get there but then again this is a very beautiful part of the island.
It's not all that easy to find either. The road to Pano Kambos leads through a fertile valley of vineyards and olive groves before the hamlet of Koulida. The track to the left off the asphalt leads to the tomb while a track a little further on takes you to Plakoto beach.
