ArchitectureThe magic Aura of Symi’s Port.
From the first moment a boat approaches Symi’s port, you can see hundreds of eyes getting stunned by its intense colors and visual aesthetics. When the boat parks and as you step on the island, the breeze hovering above the waves, brings you a sense of freshness which is contrasting to the hot sunrays. The sky will almost surely be turquoise blue, thus enhancing the intensity of the colors.
Blue is the main color you see while gazing the ocean and its visual connection with the sky. This creates an impressive visual background for the unique architecture and the small colorful houses of Symi. Preserving the traditional building’s shape and vibrating colors has always been a top priority for the locals. This makes up for a fairy-tale setting that drives the visitors to exploring every alleyway and taking in every single detail along the way.
