San Michalis

San Michalis is a small hamlet. Its inhabitants are mostly farmers who live there all through the summer, while, during winter, they only visit it occasionally to carry out certain jobs.

Chroussa Community

Tel: +30 22810 61480
  Chroussa, along with Pagos, is a village situated in the centre of the island, at 7 km from Hermoupolis. It is a typical agricultural site, among orchards and greenhouses. These supply the island with fresh fruits and vegetables.
  Its farms are built in traditional style and are typical of this kind of architecture on Syros. One also finds some surprisingly grand country houses in neoclassical style, dating from the 19th century and screened from the road by pine groves. Amazingly green gardens thrive in the shade of these trees.
  The impressive catholic church of Faneromenis is situated on the hill. During religious holidays, it attracts a great number of worshippers.   Remains of an ancient settlement are found on the site of "Agia Thekla".

Galissa Community

Tel: +30 22810 42408
  Galissa, at 9 km from Ermoupolis, is a well-known seaside resort, boasting the largest beach of the island. It counts modern hotel complexes, rooms for rent and a camping.
  The village is situated on a picturesque site. Its sandy beaches are crowded by numerous visitors and its pier is a fine place for delightful strolls and sightseeing. If you are romantically inclined, you can walk to the country church of Agios Stefanos, built on the rocks just above the sea. The small snow-white chapel of Agias Pakous (or Ipakous) was built on the foundations of an even older church.
  Remains of an ancient settlement were found here.

KINI (Settlement) SYROS
  Leaving Galissa, a short cut leads to Danakos and to Kini, a lovely fishing village where a special kind of magic is created, each evening, by the glowing colours of the sunset. It is, without a doubt, your best choice for family vacations.
  The view on the village is spectacular. Sunlight sparkles off the white houses dotted along the bay, where small fishing boats float on the calm and deep blue surface of the sea, with the hills of Pano Meria as a perfect backdrop.
  The beaches of Kini and Lotos, as well as that of the bay of Delfini are among the most pristine on the island, with plenty of taverns and hotels nearby.
