Church of Panagia (Virgin Mary) Paraportiani, Mykonos (Μύκονος), Greece


This is the photo of the Church of Panagia (Virgin Mary) Paraportiani, Mykonos (Μύκονος), Cyclades, Greece. The Church which dates back to 15th century, is the most famous church in Mykonos. Its strategic position on a promontory facing the sea shows off its unique architecture. The church is the most important element of the “kastro” or the castle area which is considered to be the most antic part of the town.
The church received the name “Paraportiani” because it can be reached by the side door that belonged to the medieval castle of Mykonos.
