Attractions in Mykonos Town

  • The Windmills  From as early as the 16th century, when the island was a great producer of wheat and bread  the windmills have been one of the most recognized landmarks of Mykonos. With a splendid view on Little Venice they are the most popular place to watch the Myconian sunset.  
  • Little Venice One of the favorite Mykonos attractions is located at the sea. This district is famous for its picturesque medieval two and three storey houses with their colourful wooden balconies and offers a fantastic view of the sunset. When in Mykonos you must definitely enjoy a cocktail in one of the many bars and cafes while watching this amazing sunset on the seashore of Little Venice.
  • Panagia Paraportiani Located in the Kastro district, the oldest section of Mykonos Town, this white washed church is a true Byzantine jewel, dating back to 1425. It is made up of five chapels; one of them is open to visitors, from early morning until sunset.
