Andreas Miaoulis Statue is located in the entrance of the port of Hydra on the east side of the port. Andras Miaoulis - Vokos (1769-1835), was a Greek admiral who led the fleet of Hydra and later the whole Greek fleet, during the Greek Revolution (1821), becoming victorious in numerous naval combats.
It is a special building in Hydra, built in the early 19th century by Georgios Kountouriotis. Pavlos Kountouriotis has been buried there, the legendary captain of the Warship Averof, according to his wish. The building was donated to the government, by Pavlos Kountouriotis descendants, on condition that a museum will be housed there, however, it hasn’t been used yet.
Historical Records – The Hydra Museum (Ι.Α.Μ.Υ.) is housed in a building of great architecture, at the port of Hydra, just before we reach the statue of Miaoulis. Some great relics from the Greek Revolution are exhibited there, in addition to material relevant to the naval tradition of Hydra.
It is a bridge of unique beauty and as a matter of fact, the only stone bridge in Hydra. You will come across it at the route from the port of Hydra towards Vlichos, just before you get there. The bridge is believed to have been built in around 1825.
