The church is a unique monument. Its like beeing created by the blue see and the strong winds. Unfortunately its not open for the public. Nice place for photoshooting

Located in Little Venice, it is the most famous church in Mykonos. Its English name is Our Lady of the Postern Gate. See it while in Little Venice and on your way to the windmills

The church is constantly closed. But the architecture is so unique that it is worth visiting it just to take a few original shots. If you are brave enough to get to the rocks in front of the church you can also take pictures of Mykonos' windmills.

The church comprises of four is a Chora landmark but unfortunately permanently closed. Nice point to see the sunset but the surrounding area full of rubbish and smelly.

Really strange strange building. You should see it just to appreciate the funny architecture. Maybe the most significative symbol of mykonos after the mills. The most white buildings in all the town. Nice view for the sunset, when the Costa Crociere are not in the middle -_- You can only visit the outside

Although they don't allow anyone outside, its four churches combined into one. Its a great place to take pictures and beautiful views of the sea from points around it.

The Church sits right next to Little Venice and is quite easy to find being so close to the port. We stumbled across it easily. Beautiful Church with white washed appearance looks stunning with the turquoise sea behind. Worth a visit!

Most of Mykonos's buildings are all white wash and to see the churches so spiffy and refreshing looking is very different from the America's. There are so many churches in this little area all with beautiful crosses and bells and inviting doors! We were told that all the entrance doors to the churches are on the same side of the... More
