Syros Island

Only a couple of hours out of Athens, this beautifil island in the middle of Cyclades, is the ideal getaway.This is the town hall of Ermoupolis, one of the largest such buildings in Greece, built between 1876 and 1898 by the famous architect Ernest Ziller. The town, in general, has very interesting architecture. Impressive old mansions made from marble built at the edge of the sea, streets with flat stone paving, monuments and hidden beauty. Pretty unusual sight to see in the middle of the Aegean Sea.
