Spring Sariza Andros

The legend tells of a Pasha named San-rizas, residing on the island of Evia, who allegedly lost his fez in a stream that flowed into the village of Apikia on Andros, giving the stream its name. Thus, it is believed that the Sariza spring is linked to Evia.

While the exact origins of the marble fountain at the Sariza spring remain unknown, historical records indicate that it was established in 1787 through the efforts and oversight of Makarios Polemis. This natural water source served multiple purposes, providing water for the local residents, irrigation for agricultural lands, and a spot for the women of the village to wash clothes.
