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.).

On the way to Palloi there are the municipal therapeutical baths which operated in 1865 by N. Apostolides.

The village of Palloi is built on an ancient city from which there are still remnants of the Roman and paleo- christianic period. There are still remnants of the Hippocratic Therapeutical Baths, along with the chapel of Panaghia Thermiani.
