  • Old Town, Castle, Panagia Ekatontapylianni, the sea front full of cafe bars and resturants, many amazing things to do and see! 
  • It may seem that it all somewhere. With a maze of winding streets, Whited and flower houses Parikia is an excellent example of cycladic architecture, and taverns, bars bought many in and around the port form a friendly atmosphere. In a Word, the traditional cycladic character and charm. It is worth pausing for a moment.

  • For fun, we spent the day walking through the alleys of Parikia, visiting churches and shops. Blue sky, flowers, always pleasant people and artistic discoveries. Then walk along the edge, eating in a taverna, admire the sunset on the harbour. It takes time!
