Andros is the northernmost island of the Cyclades, with great seafaring tradition. There are Sandy beaches, rocky coasts, and mountain ranges alternating with fertile plains, lush vegetation and many streams. Andros has always been seen as a gateway to the Aegean Sea. The island area is 400 sq. km, the coastline is 177 km and the population amounts to 10,000.

In antiquity it was a remarkably well organised society with high cultural standards. It has been inhabited since prehistoric times. In the 7th century BC, its residents founded extensive colonies in Macedonia. The Venetians occupied Andros until 1566 when the Turks conquered it. In 1790, the fleet led by Lampros Katsonis clashed with Turkish forces and suffered great destruction near the island’s north-west shores, at Kafireas strait. Andros took part in the 1821 Greek Independence War. One of the prominent personalities of the time was the scholar Theophilos Kairis.

It is the homeland of famous sea captains and ship-owners.
