Plateia Miaouli

TIME : 2016/2/18 18:49:20

This great square is perhaps the finest urban space in the Cyclades. Once situated immediately upon the seashore, today it sits well inland and is dominated by the dignified neoclassical town hall , designed by Ernst Ziller. Flanked by palm trees and lined along all sides with cafes and bars, the square and accompanying statue are named for Hydriot naval hero Andreas Miaoulis.

The town’s small, unremarkable archaeological museum is housed in the rear of the town hall. A couple of elegant old-world cafes are found in the hall’s wings, with alfresco seating for great people-watching.
