A life experience

It's not about an island, but a cluster of Islands. The main island, with 16 square. km. area and approximately 700 residents, gave its name to the whole cluster and can serve as a starting point for getting to know the rest, all belonging to the Natura 2000 environmental network. Quiet island, with low hills, full of benches and small, subtle beaches, ideal for relaxing holidays.

In the port and the island's unique settlement, you will see the Nikiforio Ecclesiastical Museum, housed in the Town Hall, with religious and folkloric exhibits, the archaeological collection of vases and inscriptions on slabs and columns of classical, Hellenistic and Christian era and also the lending library. At Kuselio you will find monuments from the early Christian era. At the highest point of the island, the Castle, the ruins of the Acropolis are talking about the past of the island. On the island there are 'so many churches as the families', at least as it is said. It is worth mentioning the Virgin of Charos for its architectural rhythm, island-Byzantine, dating from the 11th-12th century. It took its name from the icon of the Virgin Mary that holds in her arms Jesus Crucified and not as infant.

The island is ideal for bird-watching. The rocks and the seaside caves offer shelter for the rare egeoglaro, which has an entire rookery in Lipsi and in the islets of Makronisi and Aspronisi. Also, you'll notice the migratory Eleonora's Falcon, also known as varvaki. Ιt nests in rookeries, mostly in uninhabited islets or in inaccessible cliffs.

Here you will savour fava bean balls, coils, fried pies, calamari with black rice, tomatoes, spinialo, fuskalo, pitarudia, grilled or fried pouches,ksinomizithra, and touloumisio. Always, of course, with the local wine.
