Syros Capuchin monastery

Near the Jesuit monastery they built the Capuchin monastery, which played an important role in the religious and social life of Ano Syros. The historical church of Agios Ioannis, a Catholic Metropolis of the island between 1639-1652, is located here. Beneath the church there are crypts which the people ran to when there were pirate raids.
