NISYROS ISLAND GREECE, REGION: DODEKANESE ISLANDS
The island of Nisyros is almost circular-shaped.
In fact it's about a volcanic cone containing one of the most
ancient and bigger volcanic craters in the Mediterranean.
Around Nisyros there are the islets of Gyali, where there is a pumice
stone excavation pit, and obsidian excavation during ancient years, as
well Kantilioussa, Pyrgoussa, Stroggili and Pachia.
In Nisyros, horizontal lanes of dry wall (vastadia)
support the ground creating lanes of cultivable land (pezoula
(terraces) or tavla). Rocky cottages (apostrofi,
spiladi), old distilleries, (kazanari where the
famous koukouzina is being made), chapels, paved paths (kalderimia)
spread in the whole area, testimony the human endeavor of survival and
expression as well.
The 4 traditional settlements, with their dense
continuous layout, are built on or next to ancient settlements,
including a castle usually dominating on the hill top. Remnants of the
ancient walls are all around the island, penetrating the settlements,
tangling with history, narrating various events. Italians, Turkish,
Venetians, Dorians, Mycenaeans, Pelasgians. We recommend seeing:
Mandraki the capital of the island and port with the
unique walls of the ancient Greek acropolis (Palaiokastro
4th bef. J.C.) and the Venetian castle with the
monastery of Spiliani (1.400 post J.C.).

baths which operated in 1865 by N. Apostolides.
