Syros. An island rich in history, culture, beauties, beaches, choices of entertainment and happy moments.
Imposing and classy, rightly said to be an open-air museum of neoclassic architecture, Hermopoulis, Syros’s Capital, will seduce you at first sight. Built amphitheatrically from up the hill of Vrodado down to the big port impresses with its neoclassical buildings encountered at every corner.
Entering Syros harbor you come across the scenery which distinguishes Hermoupolis from any other destination. It is two imposing hills. One hill is crowned by the catholic church of Saint George, known to the locals as “San Tzortzis” and the other hill, proudly hosts the orthodox Church of the Resurrection. Syros hosts one of the largest communities of Catholics in Greece and is also known for being the only place worldwide where Catholics, after Pope’s special permission, celebrate Easter on the very same date with Orthodox Christians.
Also proud for its Town Hall, built by architect Ernst Schiller, Hermoupolis is a true gem for the Island. Its coastal road with prime food restaurants, taverns offering traditional Aegean dishes, cafeterias and bars is a dreamy spot for romantic walks and leisure.
Looking up, the region of Ano Syros takes your breath away with the unique view of the Aegean and the pedestrian alleys that take you back in time.
Syros distinguishes for its Cycladic architecture, its natural beauty, its sights, its numerous beaches its cultural events, its inhabitants’ warmness and politeness. Don’ t miss the opportunity to visit it. It is certain that it will amaze you!
