Description



Despotico, Tsimintiri and Strongilo

Westwards of Antiparos we find three small, uninhabited islands that present a great archaeological interest: Despotico, Tsimintiri and Strongilo. The archaeologists found  in the islet Despotico, parts of an ancient temple from the classical years, an archaic Dorian column, marble parts of building groups, figurines but also a crowd of objects. Even if uninhabited in the modern times, Despotico met days of glory and intense human presence in the past and is connected closely with the Cycladic Culture and the historical development of the Aegean.

Despotico and Strongilo are two islands with virgin nature and protected species. For this reason they are included in the network Natura 2000.
