Construction started in 1425 and was finished in the 17th century. Actually this is a 5 church complex. 4 are dedicated to Saint Eustathios, Saint Sozon, Saints Anargyroi and Saint Anastasia and constitute the base of the fifth church.

We reached here around sunset, and were able to capture / see good views of the church & its surrounds. One of the most photographed sites on the isle.

Wish we could have gotten inside! You can take some beautiful pictures of this church from many sides. Hard to get them without the tourists in them though!

You come to the Cyclades expecting white-washed buildings. Mykonos doesn't disappoint and this is one of the best such buildings in Mykonos.

We passed the Paraportiani Orthodox Church while on a Mykonos walking tour. It is pretty but clearly a little touristy. But me, being a blueblooded tourist, enjoyed it and took a bunch of pictures. It was closed when we went by.
