Three kilometres from Guía de Isora is Chío, one of the largest population centres in the municipality.
You will be captivated by the traditional buildings with rural features which surround the town square where a quaint old church dominates. There are a network of narrow streets and alleyways leading around the village along with many historical features such as the springs, which up until a short time ago were used daily by the local villagers.
The first chapel which existed in the village was constructed in the seventeenth century, but it was torn down because it had become too small for the number of parishioners, even though it had been renovated to accommodate the growing population. The Church of San Juan Bautista de Chío was built in 1960. Inside it you can find two especially magnificent statues: Our Lady of Peace and St. Juan Bautista.
If you take the opportunity to stroll around the area you will see lots of vineyards and be able to breathe in the fresh air.
