Also known as Holy Island, Yeronisos has been a popular destination for
travellers over centuries. The excavations completed in 2016 brought to light
facts about the Ptolemaic period as well as Ionic style architecture findings. As
part of the European Capital of Culture events, 2017 will be the year during which
students, local people, archaeologists, seamen and fishermen will celebrate
the completion of the excavations and invite us to a series of activities related
to Yeronisos, such as lectures, tours and festive concerts.
At the same time, an international sailing competition around Yeronisos will
be organised in order to highlight the islands’ natural beauty and the region’s
archaeological importance.
