Great iconic church in Mykonos Town. Right in the middle of all the action near the port. Stop in and check it out.

Another significant landmark in Mykonos Town. By the waters edge it is a splendid example of local architecture

It's nice and old. But I never experienced it open. Nevertheless very nice from outside. The area around it is also very interesting. A must see, when in Mykonos.

Nothing special but just a cute little white church. How cute? you should see it yourself. Once you saw it you will understand it. Just a few minutes walk from the Mykonos old port.
