Church Of Paraportiani - Review

The church of Paraportiani is a complex of four churches in one spot evident from the different building styles that went into its construction including Byzantine, vernacular, traditional and western. Nature also contributes to the Church’s beauty and the obvious wear and tear of the walls give it a very atmospheric look. The church stands next to what was once the doorway to Mykonos’ medieval castle, now vanished. To get to the main church, visitors must first pass the four ground floor temples and then ascend to the first floor. Its unusual architectural style makes it one of the most photographed buildings on the island. If you’re visiting, try coming during sunset, when the bright white wall slowly takes on a rich orange glow. There’s nothing quite like it anywhere else in the world. Though it’s usually not open to tourists, if you go in during prayer time you’ll be able to light a candle inside. Watching the people here pray is beautiful.

Church Of Paraportiani, Mykonos Reviews

  • Such a beautiful small picturesque church. If you find it open you can feel the small size of it but there is not much more to admire from the inside. The outside is all beautiful with the traditional whitewashed walls setting up the scenery. You can find it while strolling around in the narrow streets of Mykonos town

  • My Greek friend described it as "a church with almost no straight lines," and for the large part, the description seems befitting. 5 churches joined together, it almost camouflages into the surrounding houses, which is supposedly the point of the architecture to avoid attracting attention from invaders through the centuries. There is usually a small but many times a large crowd. It's the most photographed church here for a reason. A very easy walk from where the tenders dropped off.

  • Mykonos was my favorite port out of all the Greek ones we visited. if your cruise anchors in the middle of the bay, and you come in with the small boats, this church is the first thing you see, which is classic Greek scenery. Beautiful, could peek into the church from behind the gate :)

  • In Mykonos (but all around Greece) there is an impressive number of churches. What makes the Paraportiani church so unique is its construction. This lovely whitewashed church, right by the sea, actually consists of five separate churches with different styles which have been joined into one. In facts, the four churches at ground level constitute also the base of the fifth church that has been built above them and which is the main church.

  • One of the most iconic places in Mykonos!next to it you will see the narrow street you will recognise from all those instagram posts with the view at the sea!
