Mykonos Town (Chora), the islands capital, will impress visitors from the moment they first step their feet on its ground. Bright white washed houses, sparkling under the glaring summer sunlight, set next to each other with an order of their own, cube shaped in the traditional architecture of the Cyclades. Wooden window shutters, painted in the deep blue colour of the Aegean Sea, wooden balconies packed with clay flower pots bursting with geraniums, bell towers of innumerable churches spreading out everywhere, a painting like view of unbelievable beauty from the hands of an unknown, great master.
The narrow labyrinth like streets, tile paved and white washed in their edges and in between the tiles, hold surprises for new visitors as they will come across many small chapels and grand, majestic churches, witnesses of the deep religious belief of the locals. In Chora’s Kastro settlement, visitors will hold their breath at the unique architectural sight of Panayia Paraportiani, a cluster of five churches, declared a national monument
But Mykonos Town holds more for everyone. Especially in Matoyianni, its most commercial street, where a multitude of quaint little shops, with brand name clothes, original jewelry, handicrafts, and souvenirs, will hold you captive for hours.
In Mykonos Town many bars, cafes, and restaurants you may sit down to enjoy a refreshment, a local specialty, or an ouzo with mezedes, and just pass the time watching an unbelievably dense parade of people of all colors, sexes, nationalities, and styles, pass by.
Mykonos Town is also your base for discovering the rest of the island’s beauties, its picturesque mainland landscape, its crystal clear water, golden or white fine sand beaches.
As the sun will start to slowly descent into the reddish turning Aegean Sea, Mykonos Town will start preparing for its transformation into the wild partying, bar hopping, all night clubbing setting, of which party lovers have heard so much about and seek to experience.
