General Information of Mykonos
The Ibiza of Greece (as it is known worldwide) is characterized by its almost flat land, unlike other mountainous Greek territories. It has more than 10,000 inhabitants and 105.2 km2. For its incomparable natural beauty and historical interest, UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site.
The distance between Mykonos and Athens is 150 kilometers (1 hour by boat), making it a very popular destination among tourists who visit the Greek capital and decide to visit the Greek islands.
The ancient culture of Greece was merely maritime. This is due to its proximity to the Mediterranean Sea, which functioned as a commercial route and for territorial expansion.
In ancient times, different Greek tribes formed polis, that is, city-states with their own urban and religious centers, ports, and fortifications. Among them, we can mention Athens, Sparta, Corinth, and Thebes.
Today, tourism, shipbuilding, fishing, and harvesting (especially olive and dried fruit) are the main sources of the country's economy.
What to See and Do in Mykonos
Mykonos is a small island, but full of emblematic places to visit, whether it is the first time you travel there or not. Among these places, we recommend that you visit the following attractions.
Little Venice or Little Venice
It is a neighborhood of Chora (Mykonos Old Town), in which picturesque fishermen's houses stand out, which largely overlook the Aegean Sea itself. Its windows, almost all bluish, stand out among the buildings and give a romantic touch to the landscape.
In this area of the island, it is possible to visit the Church of Panagia Paraportiani, an impressive architectural destination of active worship, with direct views of the Mediterranean Sea.
A tip is to visit this church during the late afternoon, as the sunset light gives a dramatic touch to this building that is dyed in gold and pink colors.
Monastery of Panagia Tourliani
It is an architectural work that dates back to 1542. This building stands out among the Greek Orthodox churches: while the rest usually have blue domes, this one has a reddish tone that contrasts with the sky. In addition, inside there is a wooden altarpiece from 1775, made by artists from Florence. An imposing marble tower also stands in its courtyard and it has an ecclesiastical museum, ideal for lovers of medieval history and culture.
Just 6.5 km2 from the city of Mykonos is the locally called "Fanari" (lantern), 19 meters high and located 184 meters above sea level.
Travelers like you love this place. Why? It is a beautiful panoramic point: this construction, dating from the year 1891, offers a unique view of the New Port of Mykonos. It also leaves a glimpse of Tonos, a neighboring island, so it's worth a visit if you want to see much of the scene that surrounds the territory.
See the Windmills
One of the landscapes most portrayed by tourists visiting Mykonos is that of its windmills. South of the city of Chora, it is possible to find a group of seven well-preserved mills dating from the year 1950.
This set, commonly called Kato Mili, contrasts the whitish tones of its walls and antlers with the intense blue of the sea. It also works as a vantage point for visitors.
Visit the Historical Museums of the Island
Knowing the museums is one of the great attractions for visitors interested in learning a little about the history of the island. Among them, it is possible to highlight the Archaeological Museum of Mykonos, the Aegean Maritime Museum, and the Folklore Museum.
Get to Know Delos Island
An excursion without equal, full of the history of Ancient Greece, where mythological narratives reign. There you will be able to discover one of the most important archaeological sites in Greece, with monuments dating back to 5000 BC. The crossing usually takes around 2 hours in total (ferry ride and guided tour).
