Telendos

Posted in About Kalymnos

The imposing mounting dominates the view across the west-northwest side of Kalymnos. In 554 AD after a powerful earthquake Telendos severed from Kalymnos. Currently, less than 1 km from Myrties it has frequent connection by caique. The Byzantine settlement of Agios Konstantinos, the ruins of the Basilica of St. Basil, early Christian baths and cemeteries are testimony to the island’s rich history.

The island has plenty of taverns and restaurants literally on the beach, accommodation for several nights, beaches for every taste and plenty of climbing fields to climb. The island is free of vehicles.

Inspiration is the profile of the “princes” that forms the ridge of Telendos and the breathtaking sunset.
