Andros is the furthest north island of Cyclades known for its unique natural beauty because it combines the pure rocky landscape of Cyclades with rich green valleys and numerous springs and rivers.
Thus since ancient times the island gained names such as Ydrousa, meaning the one carrying water, or Nonagria and Lasia, that is the one densely vegetated. Habitation in the island is known to exist since 4000 BC.
Since then the island was conquered or socially organized in different ways resulting in the rich and diverse historical and cultural aspects one can find nowadays when visiting Andros.
There is a something for every taste.
