Glaronisia

Glaronissia is a small complex of uninhabited islets, located north of Milos Island, in the prefecture of Cyclades. Across the islets, lie the coastal villages of Pachaina and Agios Gerasimos while Pollonia is just a mile away. Glaronisia are a rare creation of nature, formed 800 to 700 thousand years ago as a result of volcanic lava geological turbulence. Thousands of upright pentagonal and hexagonal columns, with diagonals of 20-30cm are formed on the andesitic rock.

You can visit Glaronisia by taking one of the tourist excursions boats that make the tour of Milos and they depart from the port of Adamas. In recent years, a climbing field has been created. Administratively, Glaronissia, belongs to the municipal community of Triovasalos, which belongs to the Municipality of Milos.
