Informations
Population: 9.221
Description: Andros is the northernmost Cycladic island, just 10 km from the coast of Euboea. The original inhabitants of the island were Ionians and the Dorian invasion led to many fights and disturbances. Andros was a stopover in commercial transactions and for this reason many invaders over the history were trying to claim sovereignty. Andros was a member of the Athenian Alliance, although the residents were dissatisfied with the very high taxation when the Athenians lost the battle of Sicily, rebelled and fought alongside the Spartans. Today Andros is one of the most beautiful islands of the Cyclades, with very nice beaches and holiday destination for many Greek and foreign tourists.
