Astypalea is the fourth largest and western island of the Dodecanese. Located west of Nisyros and east of Anafi (Cyclades).
Astypalaia is the "bridge" that connects the Cyclades and the Dodecanese combining elements from both island groups. With picturesque fishing villages, beautiful sunny and quiet beaches, is an ideal place for vacation and relaxation, especially when traveling with family.
The Hora, capital and port, stands on a rock protruding into the sea, forming two bays. On one side is the port and the other the bay Livadi. The Hora almost linked with the port of Pera Gialos, is for many the most beautiful capital of the island in the Aegean.
On top of the city dominates the Venetian castle of Guerini, built with the traditional local dark stone, flanked by white houses. Inside the castle there are two white churches. The amazing windmills located above the stairs in the city, have cylinder shape and belong to the category of mills whose roof turns depending on the wind direction.
Astipalea has 365 churches and monasteries that are discreetly scattered around the island.
The island is well connected with Piraeus and the other islands of the Dodecanese. The island has an airport with relatively good connection to the airport of Athens and Rhodes.
