General Information about Syros
Syros is an island in Greece located in the center of the Cyclades archipelago. It is located in the Aegean Sea and its capital is Hermopolis, which is in turn the capital of the entire set of islands of the Cyclades.
Geographically, Syros stands out for having a mountainous and arid landscape in the northern region, while in the south it presents plains and a lot of vegetation.
This island is surrounded by capes and small bays, among which the most beautiful beaches are formed, some with very easy access and calm waters and others with slightly more difficult access and large waves.
In turn, the island presents several towns where it is possible to find important historical buildings, churches with spectacular frescoes and wonderful architecture, in which the impact of Venetian domination during medieval times can be observed.
The Cultural Wealth of Syros
This incredible island is not only a great destination to get to know its paradisiacal beaches, it also has great cultural and historical wealth, since different civilizations have inhabited it and this can be seen in its material and symbolic historical heritage.
When walking around the island you can see architectural works with a clear Venetian imprint, product of the conquest of this people during the Middle Ages and in the Syros Archeology Museum it is possible to find pieces from the Bronze Age belonging to Athenians, Persians and Byzantines.
