Paraportiani Church, Mykonos Town

4.4
#2 of 9 in Historic Sites in Mykonos
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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. Using our custom trip planner, Mykonos Town attractions like Paraportiani Church can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • The buildings in the area definitely needs a lot of white paint. It almost feels like I'm in an area that just got snowed in. Interesting architecture and shape for buildings.
  • Very special looking church, just come here and take some photos.
  • Beautiful Greek Orthodox church.
  • unique. so much white
  • Most photographed church in Mykonos. As a matter of fact it is not a single church, but four, one next to the other, the oldest one since the 15th century AD. Indeed worth some shots. Highly recommended.
