The Island of Paros

Paros is the third largest island of the Cyclades after Naxos and Andros and has developed into an important centre of tourism in recent years.Gently rolling hills surround the centre and south-east of the island, which is predominantly agricultural and is occupied by endless vineyards, and lock within themselves the famous Parian marble.


Major Cities

The coastline is indented, with numerous small inlets and two large bays, those of Naoussa in the north and Parikia in the west.Parikia the island's capital and port, stands on the site of an ancient city. There is a picturesque and ruinous Venetian castle, and the courtyards of the houses of the town - all of them painted white - are full of pots of basil and hung with jasmine and honeysuckle.


Historical Sights

A broad paved avenue leads to the church of Ekatondapiliani or Katapoliani, one of the most important Byzantine monuments in the whole of Greece and a place that figures largely in legend. Naoussa, one of the prettiest villages in the Cyclades, with whitewashed houses, narrow paved alleys, arches and tiny chapels, can also offer a range of excellent beaches and attracts many visitors each summer.


Other Atractions

Among the beaches near Naoussa, special mention should be made of Kolimbithres, where huge rocks eroded into strange shapes remind the visitor of sculptures embedded in the sand. Marpissa is an attractive large village of Paros with a Venetian castle and beautiful churches.
