Church of St. Nicolas The Poor

The church of Saint Nicholas “of the poor” is the oldest church of Syros that is still standing and was built in the 16th century (1590).

In 1691 , it was renovated and widened.

All the money raised in this church during the last century, were given to the poor people of Hermoupolis , with the initiative of Archbishop of Syros, Methodios.

During the last renovation of the temple , tombs with bones were discovered.
Today, it serves as a spiritual center for the orthodox residents of Ano Syros.
