ACTIVITIES IN SYROS
Discover Syros Island
You will need time and openness to new feelings in order to fully admire and enjoy the beauty of Syros Island and Ermoupolis. Below, you will find more details about all the places to be and the things to do in Syros.
Strolls in Ermoupoli City
Start from the Miaoulis Square with the statues of Apollo and the marble music stage and head to the Mayor’s House, one of the biggest and most impressive buildings in Greece, built by Ernest Chiller in 1898. The third landmark of Ermoupolis is the Apollon Theater built by Pietro Sampo in 1864.
There are many museums in Syros. Do not miss the Archaeological, the Ecclesiastical and the Industrial ones. Other important exhibitions are the Historic Archives of the Cyclades and the Library.
As for churches, you will be impressed by the Metropolitan Church of Metamorphosis Sotiros (the Transfiguration of Jesus), the church of Koimisis tis Theotokou (the Dormition of Virgin Mary), where an authentic painting by El Greco is housed, and the Catholic church of Evangelistria. We could also mention the church of Agios Nikolaos and the district Vaporia, but this is the exact place where Villa Thalassographia is located at, so you won’t miss them.
