Batsi Town Harbour on Andros Island, Greece.

Various Places on Andros Greece.

A variety of locations on the Greek Island of Andros which might be of interest to visit - with photos.

The scenery on this Greek Island is outstanding - the island is full of old sometimes ruined buildings, old water mills and so on; the moni path walls have been built in an unusual way, i.e. conventional rock stacking but they also use huge slabs of flat perpendicular rock in between. The amount of churches dotted around is unbelievable - some of them are very old, possibly there is one church for each islander? The wildlife (do you count sheep and goats??) can be seen everywhere - from buzzards, eagles, kestrels to smaller birds, millions of lizards which scatter off just in front of you as you walk up a path; snakes are around dozing on the paths and rocks in the sun but they are quite small (the largest we saw was about 18 inches) and anyway they clear off quickly when they hear you coming. Then there are huge bees, butterflies and moths as well as the usual wildlife found near streams, springs and wet boggy areas. In some of the island's villages there are quite long levada runs - these are always so fascinating to walk along as well as being great for a quick splash/cool down when the weather is hot. Along the paths you are often accompanied by what must be totally miles of small rubber pipes which are used to transport the water intercepted from the springs high up in the hills back down to the villages and farms.

Moni Aghios Nikolas and the excellently shaped Aladino bridge - Andros, Greece.

Aladino Village is in the centre of the island and south west of Batsi - it could be visited to see it's gorgeous bridge perhaps during an island day trip drive to for instance Ormos.

The following are of a few of the many Springs which can be looked at on the Greek Island of Andros plus photos from Ateni Valley.

Walking on the island is particularly good and quite a few of these springs, dovecots and so on can be seen as part of hiking trips on Andros.
If you go for a drive and tour around around the Andros - which is one of Greece's larger islands - you often pass through a variety of valleys. As is seemingly always the case on Andros everything is all very scenic - the very last three pictures below were taken around the beautiful Ateni Valley.
