Activities of the inhabitants

  The traditional occupations of the inhabitants are farming, animal farming, fishing, sponge diving and trading due to the advantaged position of the islands which lie between Europe, Asia and Africa. For the poorer islands a source of income and therefore development was the monetary exhchange coming from Dodecanese emigrants and shipping.
  Today, the main activities of the inhabitants have to do with tourism. However, many of the traditional occupations still survive such as stone masonry, carpentry and ship building and the women have never ceased producing exceptional textiles, knitted handicrafts and embroideries.
