Andros is the northernmost island of the Greek Cyclades archipelago, approximately 10 kilometres south east of Euboea, and about 3 kilometres north of Tinos. It is nearly 40 kilometres long, and its greatest width is 16 kilometres. Its surface is for the most part mountainous, with many fruitful and well-watered valleys. The island is about 380 km2 big and the largest towns are Andros (town), Gávrio, Bátsi, and Órmos Korthíou.
The island is famous for its Sariza spring at Apoikia where the water comes out of a lionhead. Palaeopolis, the ancient capital, was built into a steep hillside, and its harbor's breakwater can still be seen underwater.
