  • Small but very rich Cathedral, full of memories of the past wisely preserved in the Museum at the side. A meditative and cultural visit certainly worthy of note

  • Byzantine style little seen in the Cyclades. Worth a visit if you are in Paros, but not a must. Beggars day and claudots at night, not always pleasant. Restoration, because it fell into ruin.
