Mykonos Soul Suites
Mykonos Town (Chora)
Shiny in white, you will get lost in its narrow streets, while the scent of flowers from the well-kept yards will enchant you. The famed captain’s houses stand out for their particular architecture, while the constant “hide and seek” with the endless sea blue will become your companion as you wander around the Town and its old churches. Meet the famed pelicans of Mykonos at Gialos, visit the church of Agios Nikolaos Kadenas, the Town Hall that dates from 1780 and the old school of Mavros. Traversing the alley of Barkia will bring you to the famous Paraportiani, a rare complex of five churches dating completed in the 17th century.
Little Venice - Windmills
A symbol of Mykonos, Little Venice never fails to attract the interest of visitors, who flock to this picturesque area to take pictures with this famous setting in the background. The houses in Little Venice date from the 18th century, while their foundations stand on the seabed. Today, various restaurants and bars are housed in these structures. A little further down the road stands another island symbol – the Windmills of Kato Mili, which ground grain into flour powered by the north wind into the early 20th century. Today, they stand facing the sea and are beautifully illuminated at night.
The birthplace of Apollo and Artemis, according to mythology, the sacred island of Delos is where Leto sought refuge from the jealous Hera to give birth to the son of Zeus, the most beautiful of the gods. Since then, the white Archaic lions sculpted from Naxian marble frame the island and preserve its eternal aura. A day trip to the island offers opportunities to connect with mythology as well as the unique experience of taking a journey into the depths of history.
Rhenia, Tragonisi and Ktapodia. The three small islets sprinkled around Mykonos will be the ideal destination for those seeking more direct contact with nature. Highlights include the emerald green waters and mysterious caves.
One of the most interesting lighthouses in the Cyclades. Built in the end of the 19th century, this is the ideal setting to take a walk and enjoy one of the most beautiful sunsets in the Aegean. The lighthouse’s old mechanism is on display in Chora, in the garden of the Nautical Museum.
The island’s rich history can be traced through a series of findings and exhibits. The Gyzi Castle on the hill of Palaiokastro, the Neolithic settlement of Ftelia, the Mycenaean tomb in the Aggelika area, the ancient wells and the tower ruins are the most important sites that attest to the island’s great history.
