What can you say about this magic place.... Whether you are a believer or not this place abudantly offers good vibes and serenity. The architecture of the church is as amazing as its history... just think that it is built on top of an ancient greek temple!

This is a stunning church that looks very ordinary from the outside but is magnificent inside. The proportions of the arches in the interior are perfect and it is very light and airy. I also liked the carpet throughout which gave a warm and comfortable feel. Not to be missed. The history and age of the church make it even... More

I loved the history of this church. Be respectful of their culture by making sure you are not walking in with your bathing suit. General shall to cover up will do so your not too exposed. This is one of the first churches build thanks to Constantine! A must see. Right in the middle of town, can't miss it!

The beautiful church sits in the middle of a square very near to the port, so if you were waiting for a ferry instead of going to a cafe you can wander around the church.

Very good museum at the Church of 99 or 100 doors or gates, displaying many of the painted doors or gates. I'm reasonably certain there were about 40 available for viewing on the day I visited. Still, a very impressive collection of religious folk art paintings. For the price of museum admission, one is allowed into the ancient baptistery with... More

Paros has several little churches but this cathedral is something. If you are on shorts or bathing suits you will have to wear a skirt provided by the church itself and hanged outside.Amazing silver artwork.You also have the Byzantine museum nearby.

We stumble upon this cathedral when walking around in Parikia. Was a lovely find, especially since it is a functioning attraction.

A must see historical hidden gem. A peaceful haven away from hustle and bustle of the port. Try and find the 100 doors?
