Paros, charming and idyllic, was named after the leader of the Arcadians who arrived here in the X century BC. Its propitious location – Naxos, Ios, Mykonos are just a stone’s throw away – and impressive historical buildings in conjunction with fabulous beaches and favourable conditions for windsurfing and other water sports make it an increasingly popular vacation destination.
Planning your Paros stay, make sure you include Panagia Ekatondapiliani Cathedral in your wanderings. This impressive place of worship dates back to the times of Byzantine Empire. Impressive stone work, lovely frescoes, lemon trees in the yard – the visit to this cathedral is relaxing and invigorating at the same time.
