Syros is a Cycladic island. Ermoupoli is the capital city, capital of the former Prefecture of Cyclades, and also capital of the Southern Aegean Region. Syros developed particularly after 1826, when refugees from Psara, Chios, Crete, and Asia Minor, resettled on the island. Syros has been a maritime, industrial, and cultura center of the modern Greek state.
