Symi History

 - Symi Travel Guide

Stone Wine Presses

During Byzantine times, wine-making was a rich resource for the Symians, who developed a high grade of mainly white wine. However, it was only a few years ago that a researcher, Sarantis Kritikos, noted more than 120 stone wine presses, in several areas all over the island. Today, 11 stone wine presses have been reconstructed,using authentic stone parts, in the Kourkouniotis area A visit to this spot, passing through beautiful cypress forest,is a unique experience.

Architectural Heritage

The magnificent neo-classical mansions of the island, especially of the Chorio and Yialos district, are evidence of Symi's years of prosperity.Some of them date back to the 18th century. Unfortunately, at the finish of World War II, the Germans destroyed much of the capital when they retreated.Today, while some buildings remain in ruins, others have been beautifully restored as private residences or as holiday accommodation.
