chrousa1Chroussa, is a village situated in the centre of the island, at 7 km from Hermoupolis. It is a typical agricultural site, among orchards and greenhouses. These supply the island with fresh fruits and vegetables.
Its farms are built in traditional style and are typical of this kind of architecture on Syros. One also finds some surprisingly grand country houses in neoclassical style, dating from the 19th century and screened from the road by pine groves. Amazingly green gardens thrive in the shade of these trees.
The impressive catholic church of Faneromenis is situated on the hill. During religious holidays, it attracts a great number of worshippers.   Remains of an ancient settlement are found on the site of “Agia Thekla”.
