The island has a lot of mountains and is surrounded by innumerable bays and the clean sea. Chorio or Ano Symi is the main town of the island and is located between two mountains. To be more precise, the town spans two hills flanking the port of Symi. The neo-classical houses display the traditional architecture of the island and rise tier upon tier to the peak creating a small town. The town and its buildings date back to the 19th century.
Tourists travelling to the destination Symi and visit the main town Ano Symi discover some derelict buildings, partly decayed, among the picturesque houses. At the beginning of the 20th century Symi had almost 30,000 inhabitants. It used to be the capital of the Dodecanese and the hub of sponge fishing for the world. Nevertheless, after having enjoyed the time on the islands and upon departure with ferries from Symi, visitors will realize that the economical decline of Symi has come to an end and the island is flourishing again.
