Cultural-minded or nature lover, the visitor to Andros will probably run out of time trying to see all the island has to offer. Apart from the capital Chora, there are many charming villages, each with its own character, others coastal like Batsi, Gavrio and Korthi, others mountainous like Menites, that are definitely worth a visit. Even if you are not a lover of the arts, do not miss the internationally acclaimed Museum of Modern Art, which every summer organizes temporary exhibitions by major contemporary artists. Other interesting cultural institutions include the Folklore & Christian Museum, the Kairis Library with more than 60,000 rare manuscripts and the Kydonieos Institute. Worth a visit is the Panachrantou monastery, Andros’ largest, 9 km from Chora, offering marvelous views of the town of Andros and the surrounding area.
