Symi is part of the Dodecanese island chain and often described as the jewel of the Aegean. It is a small mountainous Greek island noted for its peace, tranquility, and fabulous architecture. As you round the headland, you will be greeted by the breathtaking sight of yellow and ochre colored buildings.
The buildings are built amphitheatrically around the charming harbor and became a reminder that this was one of Greece's most prosperous islands 100 years ago. There has been virtually no modern concrete construction there and now, these fine old houses are being resurrected for visitors. The spirit of the island remains intact.
