The ancient city of Ypsili was discovered in the early 1980’s.
Excavations have brought ancient relics to light, as well as the temple in the center of acropolis, buildings, part of the wall and a numerous antiquities.
These findings are valuable for the study of Geometric and Archaic period in the Cyclades and generally in the Aegean Sea.
The temple in the center of acropolis, probably dedicated to the goddess Demetra, was founded in the 8th century BC and remained active at least until the second quarter of the 5th century BC.
Ypsili is the only organized archaeological site in Andros.
