  • Through the tour, we visited this Cathedral which is an integral part of the history of the Greece. Must see! Also called the Church to 100 doors. You can find out why!

  • Big church that you must see. The name is derived from the 100 doors they have but we know the 99. When I found the 100 the city will return to us. The myth says that it was built by Constantine the great's mother.

  • an Orthodox 2glise that has been built from the 4th to the 19th century. Take your time in different chapels and in the garden

  • 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.
