If you like photography this is a great place to visit. Colour contrasts between the deepest blue of the ocean and the most candid white of the walls make will offer you a unique experience as far as colour is concerned, specially when the Sun ins shinning. I once was told that people from Mykonos paint everything white because against... More

The Church is a nice place to see while walking around the streets of Hora and it's not far away from the old port. However, the church was closed when I came there so I couldn't look inside. I saw much more impressive churches but this church is unique because of its Cycadelic architecture - and that's all. It would... More

It is a very randomly beautiful church. Just laying there nobody around it to explain its history. It definitely is a must see, but just to take a picture around it.

You could not go in this church when we were there but the outside is an amazing shape. Great for photos and worth a visit during the day on the way to the windmills and also at sunset. Only takes a few minutes and you will get some great photos.

You can't visit it. There's no information about it. It's just there. I would have like to learn more about it.

A must see to appreciate the asymmetrical beauty of Mykonos architecture. The white washed chapel is close to the harbor, shops, and tavernas for a tourist's day. A must see while in Mykonos.

Walked here after a night of drinking (my fault) and a pickpocket stole my wallet. Apparently it is a place where guys go to have some "fun" late at night but it seems very dangerous bc it is poorly lit and there are some questionable characters circling the area. A man started chatting with me bc he must have noticed... More

Paraportiani is not a single church, but separate churches built together. It is an emblem for Mykonos
