Ermoupolis, is the capital of the island of Syros, the center of the Aegean Sea and a city of unique history and architecture. The city stands on a naturally amphitheatrically site over
one of the biggest and safest ports of Aegean, with neoclassical buildings, old mansions, marble and stone-paved streets, squares, churches, mausoleums, and white-washed houses
on the surrounding hills, cascading down to the harbor.
Ermoupolis enjoys a unique history as well. The city was built from scratch from 1821 to 1825 when thousands of refugees fled the eastern islands of the
Aegean and Asia Minor, as a result of the Greek War of Independence. Very soon the city was the most important of the new free state, with a thriving commercial, industrial
and shipping sector and a population of over 25,000 people, by far the biggest city of Greece of the time. The name of the city was decided in a early referendum to honor Ermis (Hermes),
ancient Greek god of commerce.

Enchanting medieval atmosphere. Innumerable steps between narrow streets and houses with coloured doors.
The medieval settlement of Ano Syros is not accessible by car, the town is serviced mostly by marble steps. On the top of the hill is The Catholic basilica of San Giorgio. The church was constructed during the 13th century. The panoramic view is very rewarding – from there easily can be recognized the neighboring islands of Tinos, Delos, Mykonos, Paros and Naxos.
