|The east side of Kastellorizo harbour: monument to Nikolaos Spyridonos Savvas.
|Local hero Nikolaos Spyridonos Savvas was born in Kastellorizo on 11th June 1914 and killed by the Germans on Rhodes in September 1942.
Plateia Nikolaou Savva (Nikolaou Savva Square), around which the Municipio and the mosque stand, was named after him. Confusingly, like the island itself, the square has two names, its other being Plateia Kavou, and this area is generally known as Kavos.
A plaque on the sculpture's plinth states that it was "Donated and erected by the Castellorizians of Sydney Australia 3/9/1982".
