Mykonos Chora is a stunningly pretty town, with the
brightly painted balconies of the whitewashed cube shaped
houses and a maze of narrow streets, is gathered around
its harbour in the middle of a wide bay.
Traffic is banned from Mykonos town center, thus the
character of the town has been preserved. There is no
need to mention the world famous vibrant nightlife,
where the island dances till the morning, no need to
mention the numerous smart restaurants neither the bustling
jewellers and boutiques.
On the Kastro hill is the island's oldest church,
Panagia Paraportiani, an arrangement of four chapels
into one. Places of interest include the Archaeological
Museum which exhibits finds from tombs on the nearby
island Rhenia, vases and sculptures, the Nautical Museum
of the Agean (close to Tria Pigadia square) with navigation
instruments, old maps and model ships. The Folklore
Museum exhibits a collection of icons, folk musical
instruments, costumes and textiles.
