Symi is located in the south eastern Aegean, between Rhodes and Turkey. A large part of the island is rocky with two main settlements, Hora and Gialos. The two smaller settlements of Pedi and Nimborios reflect the neoclassical buildings of the two main settlements.

The capital of the island is Symi or Hora, which is built amphitheatrically upon two hills. The neoclassical houses of 19th century of the settlement are well-maintained and have been classified as preserved buildings. Visitors are impressed by the colours on the walls, the windows, the elaborate gables and the pebbled courtyards.

The Abbey of Taxiarhi Micheal of Panormiti, on the cape of Panormiti, is located on the south west of the island. The Castle of the Knights is located on the highest point of the town and close by is the Church of the Virgin Mary as well as the ruins of the temple of Athina.
