ANDROS

Andros is the northernmost island of Cyclades and second in area after Naxos. The locals often call Andros "Rock", both due to its rocky coastline and the islets surrounding it. The subsoil is almost exclusively composed of crystalline schist, "blessing" the island with rivers, creeks, streams and many springs. Hence, there are many oaks, planes, olive trees, cypresses, walnut trees and lemon trees, mainly in the S-SE side. Plentiful water and rich vegetation are also responsible for Andros ancient names: Ydrousa, Lasia, Nonagria and Epagris. The island is famous for its Sariza spring at Apoikia where the water comes out of a lionhead. Palaeopolis, the ancient capital, was built into a steep hillside, and the breakwater of its harbor can still be seen underwater.
