Fodor's Expert Review Church of Paraportiani
Mykonos Town Religious Building/Site/Shrine Fodor's Choice
Mykonians claim that exactly 365 churches and chapels dot their landscape, one for each day of the year. The most famous of these is the Church of Paraportiani. The sloping, whitewashed conglomeration of four chapels, mixing Byzantine and vernacular idioms, looks fantastic. Solid and ultimately sober, its position on a promontory facing the sea sets off the unique architecture; it's said to be one of the most photographed churches in the world.
