Syrmata in Milos
Syrmata are called in Milos the places of storage of small vessels (for boats), dug into the volcanic tuffs (volcanic rocks), mainly in coastal settlements and villages: Klima, Mandrakia and Firopotamos, next to the sea.
In Klima, Syrmata are two storey storages. Downstairs were syrmata and storage areas and on the first floor were the residences.
Their main usefulness was the prophylaxis of vessels from the weather, since people were dragging them inside the building and sometimes in other areas of the building and the first floor, if there was any, was used as a residence.
