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.
