Strofilas Andros Cyclades Greek Islands Greece

It is located in the peninsula close to Stavropeda. It is the remains of the biggest neolithic settlement found in Aegean islands and dates back to the 3rd millenium. It had strong fortifications and dense structure.


The ancient settlement of Zagora is situated on the steep plateau (height 160m.) of the peninsula. The excavations, which took place between 1960 and 1972, brought into light a large part of it. The settlement was in existence from the 10th century B.C. till the end of the 8th. It was protected by a strong wall, 110m long and 2-4.80m wide, while its height reached 3m. The entrance was through a large gate. Inside the settlement there is a sanctuary, established in the 8th century B.C. and functioning until the classical age despite the fact that the settlement was abandoned three centuries earlier. The houses were made of schist and the roofs covered with mud.


It is the remains of ancient Paleopolis, which was the capital of Andros from archaic times to Protobyzantine period.

According to the findings, the city was built at the beginning of the 5th century BC. The market for the ancient city was on the coast. On the east side was the ancient port, its remains are still at the bottom of the sea to this day.

From the remains of the structures brought to light (residences, theaters, temples, etc.) and sculptures, it seems that the city flourished financially and culturally.

These findings are housed in the Archaeological museum of Paleopolis. Among them are amazing sculptures: Kori of Copenhagen and the marble complex of Pegasus and Vellerefonti dated from the 6th century BC.
