The picturesque village of Vianos has been built on the site of ancient Vianus which was an autonomous town and that has not been explored yet but Minoan remains have been excavated in the surrounding area.
Narrow alleys, old houses, stone fountains and small squares with little cafes shadowed by huge plane trees create the pleasant and authentic atmosphere of this village.
The population is about 1220 inhabitants most of whom are engaged in farming. A monument has been erected in the village in honour of the 820 inhabitants who were executed by the Germans in September 14th of 1943. Accommodations and traditional taverns are available in Vianos.
Worth-seeing in the village is also the church of Santa Pelagia with several frescoes dating from 1360 and the church of Saint George with murals from 1401. In the wider region lies the sanctuary of Hermes and Aphrodite, in Kato Symi as well as the Viglas Cave, with its impressive stalagmites and stalactites.
