Some History

Astypalaia took its name from the daughter of Phoenix and Perimidis, who was sister of Europe. From the union of Astypalaia and Poseidon was born the legendary king Ancaeus Argonaut and King of Kos Eurypylus. The first inhabitants were Kares, who called it Pyra (fire) from the reddish color of the rocks.
