Ano Syros


http://www.welovegreece.org/pafos/Ano-Syros.jpg

On the hill of St. George, which overlooks Ermoupoli, lies the medieval town of Ano Syros, inhabited mainly by the Catholic community. This is a unique residential complex consisting of small houses glued to each other in a circle forming a defensive wall in the raids, with narrow and steep streets with infinite ramifications literally creating a maze. The only road that has a width, is the center of the village called "Piazza" and there are all the shops, bars and cafes in the area. At the highest point of the hill stands the Cathedral of St. George offers a panoramic view of Ermoupolis and the harbor. Beside the church is the Historical Archives of the Catholic Diocese of Syros, with relics and rare manuscripts of the 16th century, in a building that once housed the Seminary. The Museum of Folk Art, the monastery of the Capuchin Church of St. John of 1635 and the Jesuit monastery with the church of Our Lady of Karmilou built in 1740 are indicative of some more sights in Upper Syros, which will enchant you with its unique medieval atmosphere. In the settlement did not move vehicles, since the streets are very narrow width and there are stairs everywhere.
