14 May Andros
Andros, the birthplace of the most famous captains and shipowners, is the northernmost island of the Cyclades and only two hours away from the Rafina’s port.
Although it belongs to a complex of islands with distinctive architecture and geological uniformity, Andros is full of sandy beaches, fertile areas and vegetation.
The Aladinou’s cave, the Castle of Chora, the gulf of Pythara, St. Peter’s Tower, Ypsili and Palaiagora are just some of the sights of the island that every traveler has to visit.
In addition to a great naval tradition, Andros has a long list of Andrians who excelled in the arts and literature such as the poet Andreas Embirikos, the spiritual Theophilos Kairis and Professor Michalis Derutosos. The island remains a culture cradle as the emblematic Museum of Contemporary Art, the Archaeological Museums in Chora and Palaiopoli and the Museum of the Olive Tree of the Cyclades in the village of Pitrofos attract hundreds of tourists each year.
Andros, and other Cycladic islands, inspired SARTOR summer collection which is made by unique fabrics on the color palette of blue and white.
