Greek Charters: Andros
In the south-east is Andros or Hora, the capital of the island and its second most important harbor. This is a most attractive town, with neo-classical mansions side-by side with Cycladic houses, steep and narrow alleys lined with arcades, fine churches and two pretty squares in the center of a town which will make a lasting impression.
Among the most important monuments of Hora are the castle, now ruined, and the church of Our Lady 'Palatiani' within its walls. On the cultural side, there is an Archaeological Museum with finds from the Geometric, Classical, Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine periods, a Museum of Modern Art with works by the sculptor Michalis Tombros, and a Nautical Museum with a rich collection of ship models, photographs and ship's instruments.
Andros is home to many of Greece's seamen, and interesting cultural events take place there all the year round.
There are good swimming beaches at Nimborio, Parporti, Korthi bay near Batsi, Gavrio, Vitali and elsewhere.
