With the most famous architectural ornaments of Greece and the beautiful corners of Ano Syros, the title of "Archontissa of the Cyclades" is absolutely justified.
As the ship approaches the port of Syros, a new world is gradually unfolding in front of us. This island seems to have a different kind of energy. Perhaps this is due to the retro atmosphere that is all around you and is confirmed at every glance. Amphitheatrically built, Syros is divided into Hermoupolis, the city of Hermes, as officially named around 1826 after a proposition made by the first settlers in honour of the god of commerce, indirectly relating to its evolving commercial activities, and the upper Syros, the tallest part of the island with its wonderful alleys, white cycladic houses and a unique view to the harbor. What characterizes this city the most is its intense contradictions which, instead of fighting against each other, coexist in perfect harmony. So we see the Orthodox and the Catholic communities not trying to prevail one over the other, but coexisting perfectly harmoniously. Thus, both the Byzantine Orthodox Church of the Resurrection and the baroque Catholic church of St. George stand out on the two hills. Yet there seems to be a struggle between the old, neoclassical architecture and the modern element. In this struggle the splendor of another era appears to prevail, which is after all the distinctive feature of Syros.
