between Athens and Santorini.

Already in ancient history Paros was famous for its semi-transparent marble, which is still quarried today.
Parikia, the capital, is one of the main harbours of the Cyclades with frequent connections to almost
all other islands.

The island lies within approx. 2,5 hours (with a high-speed boat) or 4 hours (normal ferry) distance from Piraeus.

Paros Island has a lot to offer its visitors! Whether you prefer a quiet, peaceful holiday enjoying
the beautiful nature and traditional Greek atmosphere, an active or educational one, or you would
just like to party, you'll definitely find what you are looking for.

The cave at Melissani

Church of Ekatontapliani ("Our Lady of a Hundred Doors")
in Parikia just 200 m from the port

The most imposing church in the Cyclades and one of the most important in Greece, approx. 1.600 years old. On the 15th of August its nameday (a public holiday) is celebrated with a lot of festivities. Actually they are three churches in one, and legends rank about the fact that only 99 doors have been counted.

The Byzantine church of St. Constantine

Tis outstanding not only on account of its unique architecture but because of its gilded wood carved iconostasis. In various parts of the town there handsome mansions belonging to eminent island families, some even with their coat of arms incorporated over the lintel. There are also many tiny churches with wood carved iconostases. However, the most important church of all is that of the Virgin Katapoliani (or Ekatontapyliani) on the northern outskirts of Parikia. One of the oldest Early Christian basilicae in Greece, it was founded, tradition relates, by   either St. Helen or St. Constantine.

Convent of Thapsana
TA short way beyond Lefkes is the convent of Thapsana with its miraculous icon of the Virgin Myrtidiotissa. In the locality of Marathi (4km. from Parikia) there is an ancient marble quarry. 6km from Parikia is the region  of Psychopiana with its verdant vegetation, running water and myriads of butterflies. Not far of is the nunnery of Christ of the Wood (tou Dasous), repository of the shroud of St. Arsenios.
