    A greeting from the Greek Orthodox Church

    Dear friends and visitors to Syros,
    Iwelcome you to Hermoupolis, the capital city of the
    prefecture of Syros and seat of the Diocese of Syros.
    During your visit to our beautiful Island, you will have the
    opportunity to witness the marvelous neo-classical design of the
    buildings and splendor of the churches, reflections of faith and
    respect of the inhabitants.
    On these sacred grounds you will be able to admire the
    blossoming of colors, the mosaic formations which glitter as
    gold, the mirth of the painters works of art, the sacred images of
    sublime and esthetic church handicraft, sacred articles and
    treasures which inspire spiritual enchantment and emotion.
    Today, the Churches of Syros are embellished with the diligence
    and serene work of the dedicated parish priests serving with
    loyalty and virtue in all sectors of spiritual, pastoral and
    charitable work of the church. They await your arrival to extend
    their hospitality and to guide you to the ancestral church
    treasures that for decades preserve and symbolize the traditions
    and values of the Orthodox Church.
    This small publication is a concise religious guide of the
    Orthodox Churchs of the Island, since in Syros we have our
    Roman Catholic brothers headed by His Excellency Bishop
    Francisco, and we offer it to you with many paternal blessings
    for a pleasant stay and collection of the lavish spiritual
    experiences from Syros.

    Markos Vamvakaris

    by gnt70 Written May 17, 2005

    You have to go to Ano Syra, on top of one of the 2 hills of Ermoupolis. Here is the neighborhood of the Catholics of Syros, and their church. There is excellent view, delicious food in causy restaurants and on the tiny main square, this monument to honour Markos Vamvakaris, an original rebetiko music composer coming from here.
