go at sunset right as the light is beginning to change. it's a beautiful and spiritual experience that everyone should have.
this beautiful church is a must see when in Mykonos. its unique structure make it one of the most photographed churches in Europe. its located near the bay and the center of town and right near the windmills, so its very easy to find.
One of the charming wonders to see when visiting Mykonos. This little church is one of the most photographed in Europe due to its unique shape. Some days it is open to the public where you can go in and light a candle. The day that my group was there it was not.
Located at a rather quiet part of the Mykonos town, Paraportiani is a unique church that definately worths paying a visit. It's shape is one of a kind and it's location is very nice. Don't miss it.
There's something magical about this place. I cant quite put my finger on what it is - it maybe the simplicity, or the unassuming white structure, maybe its the ethereal glow on this place, when the sun sets. Whatever it is, I found myself transported to a higher plane! A magical dreamlike plane! Very unexpectedly, my favourite spot in Mykonos... More
At the end of the waterside promenade, past Jackie-O, Paraportiani is a church by daytime. By night, its grounds and paths to the water are the cruising area of Mykonos. Go anytime after sunset
Maybe the most photopraphed church in the world, unique for its architecture, bult from 15th-17th century. It has taken its name by the position of the structure, right near the small castle-gate of the old medieval castle walls of Mykonos town. Unfortunately all seperated entrances of churches are always closed but we always love it!
The design, the shape and structure, it's outstanding and unique. A class on its own, truly. When we were there, the church looks like it was just repainted, in dazzling white-wash, of course. Beautiful against the torquoise-blue sky!
