Syros “Themonies” (small farm houses)

They were sets of rural buildings which consisted of the main “themonia”, the “kalyvi” (hut) and the so-called “apoklistra” (the surrounding wall). All the Syrians had “themonies” inside their farmlands in order to store their tools or so as they can protect themselves from the heat, the cold and the rain. Later on from “themonies” came the “katikies”, the rural houses of the Syrians. The materials they used were the wood, the reeds, the black rock, the stone and the iron in order to construct the crossbars in the houses.
