  • Description

    The island of Nisyros in the Dodecanese is known primarily to geologists and nature lovers for its spectacular volcano. Unknown to most are its remarkable living history, verdant countryside, and the architecture of its four beautiful ancient settlements, which have no other place in the Aegean to envy. Yet, the adverse living conditions on the island have been a blessing in disguise, for Nisyros stands before us beautiful and intact.
