Paraportiani Church

Things to do in 

The most famous local? Pete the pelican!


Although its name remains just beyond the memories of many visitors, this site remains one of the most photographed and recognised symbols of modern Mykonos.

A collection of five churches melded into one structure, the interior isn't frequently accessible. That won't matter, the most spectacular view lies outside as the church is known as the "gateway" into Chora. A crisp white façade helps blend the seams among the individual buildings, having grown together since the 1400s.

Getting there

By land

Scooters and other "beach faring" vehicles are popular, there is facility for taxi and the charter of a private vehicle. For rentals, an international driver's licence including appropriate endorsements is required.

By sea

The cruise terminal at Mykonos is nearby, plan for about 30 minutes of travel time in a vehicle or 20 to the town's pier, then enjoy a colourful walk of the remaining distance.
