With a location in the heart of the Aegean Sea, Syros Greece has an amazing scenery that combines Cycladic and Venetian architecture.
Just imagine whitewashed houses blending with colorful mansions and big churches, surrounded by the Cycladic nature! Dreamy, right?
Ermoupoli, the capital town of Syros, is an architectural gem!
Colorful mansions, neoclassical buildings, imposing orthodox churches and squares create the most postcard-like scenery!
For a dip into the culture of Ermoupolis, visit the Town Hall building, which was designed by Ernst Ziller, Apollo Theater and Pallas cinema.
Hiking the hill above Ermoupoli, you’ll find the Catholic center of Syros, Ano Syros. While Ermoupoli boasts a Venetian beauty, Ano Syros is a typical Cycladic town with whitewashed houses and narrow alleys.
Ano Syros seems to have been made for strolls! Wander on its narrow little lanes, visit the Renaissance Cathedral of Saint George and marvel at the breathtaking view of Ermoupolis! Let this place bewitch you!
The island’s coastline is fringed with beautiful beaches, the most popular of which are located on the southern side. The best seashores are Kini, Galissa, Delfini, and Dellagratsia.
Syros is also famous for one particular thing: Its Easter holidays! Every spring, Ermoupolis bursts with life, as the center of the Easter festivities. People from all over the world go there to experience the authentic Greek Easter traditions, including treats, gospel chanting in the island’s beautiful churches, holy processions, religious hymns and feasts.
