The Armenistis Lighthouse ,Mykonos, stands as not only a protector ,to Seafarers, but also a memorial ,to those who lost their lives, in the sinking of the British Steamship Volta, back in the late 1800s as a result of this sinking and others, it was decided that a light house was needed in this area, so in 1888 work began,...

The place is located on the top of a hill, with spectacular views and surrounded by the sea. It's a great place to take pictures and admire the scenery, but you can't get into the lighthouse, nor there's anything closeby (restaurants nor even a restroom). We arrived there via scooter and the road is very hilly and rocky, so unless... More

This lighthouse is located right on the northern tip of the island and has a great panoramic view of the adjacent islands. The lighthouse itself is nothing spectacular, rather neglected actually.

The view from here is fantastic with water on three sides, and you can understand why a lighthouse is necessary. But the lighthouse itself is fully automated and there is just a rusty closed door, and bare walls to look at.

The lighthouse is strategically located on one extreme of the island, on a high elevation, clearly visible from most of the surrounding sea. The old building is completely abandoned, although it could be transformed into a lovely naval museum depicting the formidable nautical performances of the greek navigators (Ulises, Jason, etc,), It is certainly regretable that the blindness of the...
