Located at the heart of the Cycladic island chain, Paros is considered one of the best loved holiday destinations in Greece. Greek Orthodox pilgrims come to worship at the island’s ecclesiastical monument, the 6th century church of Panayia Ekatontapyliani, also called Katapoliani. Its name translates to “the church with 100 gates.” The Parikia Byzantine Museum is housed on the ground floor of the church exhibiting icons, wood-carved iconostases and other heirlooms from various monasteries and churches on the island.
There’s much more to discover on Paros including beautiful beaches, delicious cuisine, hiking trails, and several charming Cycladic villages with whitewashed cubic houses and impressive neoclassical mansions. A 13th century Venetian castle also offers an amazing view of Parikia.
The island also has an archaeological museum displays which displays exhibits from the Sanctuary of Asklipios and Pythios Apollonas and other archeological sites.
The famous Parian marble can be found in the town of Marathi. The historic quarry was in operation from the 3rd century BC up to the 19th century.
