ANO SYROS ON THE ISLAND OF SYROS IN GREECE

Nederlands On the highest hilltop overlooking the capital Ermoupolis lies Ano Syros, with its famous Christian Church. Like the Orthodox church it is set in the spotlights in the evenings and night, creating a spectaculair site. Ano Syros is authentic and quiet with plenty of old houses, cobbled streets, stairs (which cannot be avoided), small churches and a few places where you can have a refreshment or something to eat. There is close to no traffic in Ano Syros and the views from the village down over the Bay and Ermoupolis are very rewarding.

There are not that many accommodations are not in the old Medieval town of Ano Syros, but just below the San Giori Cathedral, which dates from the 13th century, you will find the Wind Tales Hotel. For the adventurous ones there is also a windmill for rent. Ano Syros is the second largest city of Syros (after Ermoupolis, to which it is glued). Ano Syros was built by the Venetians in the early 13th century. It is accessible by car, but a large part of the city consists of marble stairs. The distance to the port of Ermoupolis is about one kilometer. Ano Syros is built on a strategic place because of the view. From the Cathedral you can overlook a lot of other islands, such as Andros, Tinos, Mykonos, Delos, Paros and Naxos.
