Ano Symi

Ano Symi is the main town of the island of Symi, north-west of the island of Rhodes in Greece.

 

The shipbuilding and sponge industries were substantial on the island and, while at their peak near the end of the 19th century, the population reached 22,500. Symi's main industry is now tourism and the population has declined to 2,500.
