Paraportiani Church, Mykonos Town
Trip Planner: Europe / Greece / South Aegean / Cyclades / Mykonos / Mykonos Town / Paraportiani Church
Arguably the most popular of the 400 churches on the island of Mykonos, features five whitewashed chapels built on top of one another. One of the Aegean's architectural highlights, the church stands out in dazzling white and provides a favorite photographic backdrop for the island's many visitors. Built in stages between the 14th and 17th centuries, the multi-layered structure's main feature is its domed church of the Virgin Mary on the top, which can be reached by an external staircase made of stone. At dusk the soft light of the setting sun creates good conditions for dramatic snapshots.

Wenn man in Mykonos Stadt ist kommt man zwangsläufig, wenn man durch die Gassen bummelt, auch zu dieser Kirche, die äußerlich durch ihre Bauweise fasziniert.

Unfortunately, the church was closed, so an interior tour was not possible. It is understandable, however, because with the crowds, the interior would certainly be quickly destroyed. Taking a picture of the church is relatively difficult, as mostly Asian female tourists take a while to capture their different poses with mobile phone and selfie-stick.
Endroit très agréable. Ce rassemblement de plusieurs églises est très surprenant et magnifique. Site à visiter pour le plaisir des yeux more »Very nice place. This gathering of several churches is very surprising and beautiful. Site to visit for the pleasure of the eyes
Absolutely gorgeous for pictures. Never saw it open, sadly. Make sure to view ocean rockline just behind Church also
This is an historic landmark in Chora on the island of Mykonos, Greece. It's located near Littlr Venice and the Folklore Museum. It was first a Venetian fort and then the church was added to it. Actually it has 5 chapels inside. We did not get to see the inside. It is privately owned by an extended family. It's a unique style. Don't miss it.
