It was really amazing. At the end ofthe day, on our coming back, we were tired but full of beautiful impressions.
The name Syros derives from the name Sour or Osoura wich means rocky.
The first archeological finds in Chalandriani, in the north-eastern part of the sand date back to the 2nd period of the 1st Cycladic Civilisation. Most of them they are placed ,nowadays, in the Archeological Museum of Athens, In the Cycladic Museum Goulandris and in the Archeological Museum of Syros.
