print preview

The single bowed bridge of Chloe is located in a area just before the Chloe village of Rodopi. The bridge is 16 m in length and 2.50 m in width. The arch is 4 m in height 4 m in length.
The Chloe village is in 730 m altitude and 23 km away from Organi. Chloe?s inhabitants were 426 in 2001 and 544 in 1920. Between the village and this stone bridge we find the ruins of two traditional water mills in a gully. The old mosque (tzami) is decorated with wood sculptured beams. Every year in June, Kirk Kourban, the big celebration of Bektasides Muslims is organized in a grass land over Chloe. A three day fest with struggling games between Greeks, Bulgarians and Turks is organized at the beginnings of August in Chilia (or Yalia, rephrasing St Ilias). People arrive there from Chloe by taking a dusty road.
