Arguably the hallmark of Nisyros is the volcano. The volcano caldera dominates the central part of the island. Prominent place among the monuments of Nisyros owns the castle Paleokastro. It is the citadel of the classical age just outside Mandraki.

At an elevation of 150 meters in the center of the capital stands the Castle of the Knights of St. John, which dates from the early 14th century. Within the castle is hosted the impressive Monastery of Spiliani.
