Syros is one of the Cyclades Islands, located southwest of Athens in the Aegean Sea. During the 19th century the port of Ermoupolis became the major port of Greece. Though it was long ago superseded by Piraeus (port to Athens), it's still Cyclades' capital and largest city.
Syros was the only Greek island with entirely Roman Catholic population during the Middle Ages, result of conversions by the Franks who took over the isle in 1207. This gave it the support of the West (especially the French) during Ottoman times. During the War of Independence Syros remained neutral and thousands of refugees ravaged by the Turks fled here. They brought their Orthodox religion with them and established a new settlement on a hill (Vrondado) and the port city of Ermoupolis. Ermoupolis became the naval, cultural and commercial centre of Greece after Independence. Today's catholic population of Syros is 40% and the Orthodox, 60%. City's neoclassical mansions and grand churches are testimonies to its former grandeur.
