Shipbuilding Quay

The residents of Ierissos are known to be great shipwrights, preserving an age-old profession which passes on from generation to generation.

The quays of Ierissos are the oldest in Greece and have been graced by many talented shipwrights, such as the father of the traditional art of shipbuilding Dimitrios S. Papasterianos, who is no longer with us but had build boats for all seas in Europe, but also for sea scouts, his most famous boat being an 8oar called Aegeas.
