The old village of Εμπορειός sits at the northern edge of the crater on Nisyros but is much less preserved or restored than Νικία. I am told it has a permanent population of 12 and is becoming popular with artists. A unique and old way of life is recorded in many of the ruins that are now inhabited by sheep, rodents and in one case a colony of bats.
