Photographer's Note

The scenic "Ano Sira" as the locals call this unique village, features walls, narrow streets and arches and preserves its medieval form almost intact through the years.

Among the low ceiling houses we meet the traditional taverns where Markos Vamvakaris and Vasilis Tsitsanis - figures of the folkloric music - used to sing with the company of their bouzouki. Its alleys with the innumerable steps give to the town the charm of a different era. From here you can admire an outstanding view and the sight embraces the Aegean all the way to neighboring Tinos and Mykonos Islands.

During the summer there are often folcloric exhibitions and every two years the visitor enjoys the so-called Apanosyria, which include cultural events, theatrical plays, concerts and lectures. In the numerous taverns you will hear old local songs and taste wonderful appetizers while a bar will always be open for you to enjoy a last drink!
