Kalymnos Insel Sehenswürdigkeiten

Kalymnos Insel Sehenswürdigkeiten


In den letzten Jahren hat sich die Insel Kalymnos allmählich zu einem Kletterziel entwickelt. Die Landschaft ist bergig und das charakteristische Merkmal von Kalymnos sind die vielen Höhlen. Die Berge an der Nordseite der Insel und die Nachbarinsel Telendos sind die beliebtesten Orte zum Klettern. Eine weitere interessante Sehenswürdigkeit in Kalymnos sind das Kloster von Agios Savvas und die mittelalterliche Burg von Chryssoheria. Besucher sollten auch eine Bootsfahrt vom Hafen von Myrties zur Insel Telendos, einem abgelegenen Ort mit FKK-Stränden, nicht verpassen.
