Paraportiani Mykonos

The Church of Paraportiani remains probably the most photographed church in the Greek islands. It is located at the west side of the town over Kastro at the square of Paraportiani,  with  5 small chapels, which merge to create a single building. Dates back to the sixteenth century and is a wonderful example of Cycladic architecture. Its name means "Our Lady of the Door" and comes from a secondary entrance in the walls of the Venetian fortress that now has been now disappeared.
