  • [01] Cultural projects on Nisyros island

    A new archaeological museum as well as the ancient citadel of Paleokastro and the famed Panaghia Faneromeni cathedral, both recently restored, were inaugurated on the small volcanic isle of Nisyros, situated between the Dodecanese islands of Kos and Tilos.

    The island's course in history, from the prehistoric to the Byzantine era, is being presented in the new museum through the archaeological findings on display. Most of the findings were recovered during excavations that took place before 1947, when the Dodecanese islands were under Italian rule.

    Tourists will also have the opportunity to visit the recently restored fortified citadel of the island located over the community of Mandraki. The project was financed by the 3rd Community Support Framework (CSF). Black volcanic stones were used to build the citadel walls which are regarded as the best preserved in the Aegean Sea region. The citadel of Paleokastro was first visited and described in 1841.

    Regarded as one of the most elegant churches on the Dodecanese Islands, the restored Panagia Faneromeni Church is dated back to the early 12th century AD. The restoration works were completed in 2009.
