A distinctive settlement on the island with more than 300 inhabitants (according to the 2011 census). The architecture of the village houses is atypical, with tiled roofs common here (where there also used to be ceramics workshops). As we enter the settlement we will see a small inscription welcoming us that says (in rhyming Greek), 'Dryopida is small but has a big heart waiting for you all with open arms.' And maybe that says it all, hinting at how much we will love walking in the labyrinth of its narrow alleys, visiting the big churches that spring up between them, enjoying the picturesque tavernas and cafés in the center of the settlement, exploring such attractions as the Katafyki cave, the church of Saint Minas with its carved wooden icon screen, the folklore museum, and the Ecclesiastical and Byzantine Museum, as well as walking just beyond the settlement to the little churches of Saints Constantine and Helen and Saint Paraskevi, and to the old windmills.
