Paraportiani Orthodox Church is a very beautiful place. Not far from the port and also the Venice of Mykonos 🥰

From every angle and in every type of weather, this church looks stunning. It’s right in the centre of the old town and elevated so gives great views of the sea too.

This church is really strange looking, it is as if it is not completed! You will pass by it if you go to see the wind mills.

A terrific photo-op! The church is an icon of both the Cyclades and the Greek islands in general. but I cannot rate the attraction any higher than average due to the fact that the church is closed. First begun in 1475, Paraportiani, in reality, is...More
