Another Kodak moment... best to walk from one place to the next and not plan huge amounts of time at these "tourist" spots.

While the building seemed to be in use, our visit to Mykonos was on a Sunday, we did not attempt to have a look inside but had to content ourselves with the interesting exterior which positively glowed in the sun.

This is a large ( by Mykonos standards ) white, unusual shaped church building near to the harbour, but during the week we were there, we never found it open.

This church , built between the 15 th and 18 th century looks like an iceberg at first glance...... And I know icebergs , being from the east coast of Newfoundland.

I'm not a good photographer, but my pictures of this unique church look professional, and yours will too. Take a picture of the church with the sea in the background, and you'll amaze your friends with your photographic skill. To get there, start at the taxi stand in the old port. Walk along the sea, pass the blue church that... More

Cool to see - if you can catch a glimpse without people sprawled all over it. This is THE thing to see in Mykonos apparently and EVERYONE will be there.

This church is a photographers dream. The unusual structure of the building allows for a completely different picture from each angle. A church actually made up of 5 individual churches (4 on the bottom and one on top) it is beautiful to visit. Unfortunately it is not possible to go inside any of the churches but still a nice visit... More

This church is really easy to walk to from central town, around 5 minutes it is virtually around the corner from where the blue church with fishing boat at the front is located. You will walk past here if you go to visit Litlle Venice and the windmills.

This group of 5 churches, four melded into the one main building, are just so photogenic on the outside from almost every angle. I can't comment on the interior. I strongly recommend you get up early to photograph then as it can get very busy especially in summer. At 9.30am on a September morning there wasn't a single tourist in... More
