General information about Cyclades

Dazzling blue sea... and more! A short overview.

Even if you haven't been to the Cyclades yourself, surely you will be able to picture white asymmetrical houses with blue shutters and window-frames, beautiful churches with round blue roofs, windmills, donkeys walking up mountain trails, dazzling blue sea... just to mention a few typical characteristics of the Cyclades!

The Cyclades are a group of more than 30 small islands located in the central Aegean Sea. They are called the Cyclades because they form a rough circle around the sacred island of Delos, Greece's ancient spiritual centre and one of today's most important archaeological sites.

The Cyclades' History began at least 5.000 BC! Approx. two thirds of the islands are inhabited, the capital being the town Ermoupolis on Syros Island.

The islands' populations vary between approx. 20.000 (Syros) and 500 (Folegandros) inhabitants:

Paros: 12.000 , Syros: 20.000 , Folegandros: 500 , Antiparos: 1.000
Mykonos: 6.000 , Naxos: 15.000 , Ios: 2.000 , Santorini: 9.000 , Amorgos: 1.600
