Nisyros Vastadia

The whole island is full of dry stone walls, which were called ‘vastadia’ by the locals. They were made to support the terrain and create lanes of cultivable land. Stony cottages-‘spiladia,’ old distilleries and chapels are built between them. Furthermore, there are ‘kalderimia’ (paved paths) and trails where the foreign visitors who come to Nisyros mainly for this reason can walk.
