The doors of Syros

All of these doors are from Ermoupoli, so maybe it shouldn’t surprise me so much that all of them were closed. Ermoupoli is after all a city. Sometimes, when walking through small villages on the Greek isles, door are open, the interior hidden behind a curtain. Not so on Syros, at least in the city. I think I never even looked when we got to other places.

But who cares? The point after all is to see the doors of Syros. And I have brought you some prime examples from the island. Most doors are wooden, looking very sturdy in keeping out the heat, with an iron grille on top to get an airflow going. What I found remarkable though were all the different colors. Greece is usually known for it’s white and blue colors. Like last year on Milos, which had a couple of colorful doors but most of them were blue. Not so on Syros, here every door had a different color. Which is fabulous and gives the island an unique touch. Yours, Pollybert
