While down at the waterfront, at the post office or at the grocery store, which are near by, you can look at what in Athens would be a interesting exhibit is instead a small building and weedy lot on the waterfront. Go, look, review, but...More

We quickly saw the ancient cemetery in the town of parikia. It is located across the street from the port. It is worth a view. We didn't feel the need to go inside. It is in town and not out of the way.

The ancient cemetery of Paros shows ancient tombs, bones and marble gravestones. There are posters with descriptions and the history of the cemetery! The Municipality of Paros should keep this site clean and tidy all year round!

Its near the port and the fishing boats in Parikia, nice to see it if you pass from there. Its not a sightseeing that you have to visit.

I wouldn't suggest going out of your way to view this site but it is located right off the main street in Parikia directly across the street from the smaller marina (not the ferry port) and is worth a glance at the very least. Tombs...More
