SYROS ISLAND

All about the island of Syros

The island of Syros

Syros Island features the largest population of any other Cycladic island. It covers an 84 klm² area and is located almost in the heart of the Cyclades. It has a rich history starting from the Early Cycladic Civilization reaching up to the days of the Modern Greek State establishment. The northern part of the island is mostly mountainous and rocky with beautiful secluded beaches, whereas in the south it is more fertile and flat.

The capital, Ermoupolis, is located at the eastern part of the island. Its heavy industrialization played a crucial part to the island’s history and development. The shipyards, the industries and the agricultural products make Syros one of the most prosperous and richest islands in the Aegean Sea. The main villages of Syros Island worth discovering are the Galissas, Kini, Poseidonia, Vari, Chroussa and Phinikas.

The city of Ermoupolis

There is probably no other city like Ermoupolis in the Aegean islands. Landmarks like the Mayor’s House built by Ernest Chiller, the Apollon Theater resembling the Italian Scalas and the impressive churches and mansions create a unique atmosphere and a place that you will need plenty of time to explore.

The city of Ermoupolis was a running candidate to become modern Greece’s new capital and today’s visitors can find out why this city is so beautiful and unique. Start from the medieval area of Ano Syros, come down to the city centre where the first Greek middle class built its mansions by the sea to admire the Aegean’s beauty; complement your exploration with a traditional sweet- chalvadopita or loukoumi- for a fuller look of the spectacle that is Ermoupolis.
