CUSTOMS OFFICE – TRANSIT WAREHOUSE

When arriving to the island of Syros the first thing the visitor encounters opposite from the pier of the port of Syros is the Customs office that is built by the sea. This is a monumental two-story marble building designed by Alexander Georgantas in 1860 which stands out for its unique aesthetic. The building suffered damages from the bombings of WWII and therefore was completely rebuilt according to its original design. The merchant ships moor at the waterfront to pass the customs control even to the day. The building also houses the Picture Gallery of the Cyclades created in 1994. Next to the customs office one can also encounter the transit warehouses of Syros created in 1834. A beautiful square has been formed in front of the building and adorned with the impressive monument of the Unknown Sailor designed by John Buchanan in honor of all the Greek seamen. The Customs office of Syros is a historic monument that is worth visiting while enjoying the views to Gaidaros islet with its imposing lighthouse.
