KALYMNOS Town DODEKANISSOS

Overview

  The Capital of the island is "Pothia" with its colourful, two storey houses and its traditional island character. The town has been built amphitheatrically, with a population of 11.500 living in its densely constructed neighbourhoods.
  Its harbour, being well sheltered fro all winds, is considered one of the most important island harbours in Greece offering organized Marina services.
  Various Municipal buildings were constructed by the Italians between 1930-35 in a Venetian style, and adorn the seafront along with a variety of shops and cafes. There are countless churches displaying many valuable and beautiful icons by various well-known Kalymnian artists.
  In Pothia one can also find the local Archaeological Museum, which is housed together with bequests made by Nikolaos Vouvalis, a local benefactor. The recently set up Maritime Museum as well as the Folk Art Museum containing exhibits from Kalymnian everyday life and customs are both along the sea front road.
