It is worth seeing in Paros
Hiking trails in Paros
Paros has a central network of paths approximately 35 km. Along the way, one can find houses, small, sustainable farmhouses of stone, lime, soil, canes, seaweed, in a proof that the simple is beautiful. The windmills, the watermills, the sailboats, the wells, the cisterns, the threshing floor, the pigeons “virtue with the four corners” are not stopped by Elytis. Other organized and well-marked, others on old and fascinating paths and some ideal for adventure enthusiasts, the hiking trails of Paros will be a true revelation, even for the most skeptical. It is enough to leave any biases aside and devote yourself to exploration, starting with paper exercises and finalizing with the realization of your plans.
The famous marble of Paros
Hard and “soft” together. It allows the light to penetrate it, giving it glow and grace unparalleled.
The marble of Paros and the art of those who “worshiped” owed their eternity: Aphrodite of Milos, Hermes of Praxiteles, Delicate Victory, Temple of Apollo and the treasury of the Siphnians in Delphi.
Sculptures of the wind and the sea
Golden sand embroidered around with granite rocks, smooth in incredible shapes.
The seafood sculptures that the locals call Kolimbithres look like they were artistically hand-crafted, assisted by the strong wind and the angry Aegean sea.
The Naoussa of the Pirates
No one can believe that this harbor of the Cyclades has had such an … adventurous past: yes, the harbor of Naoussa was a pirate ship. The music from the bars, the perpetual motion from the dining-room of the restaurant, the young voices that want to suck all the life in one evening, make up a live cinematic scenery that you will find similar in other parts of the world.
To enjoy what is happening in Paros, travel with Aegean.
Water sports for many beauforts
Fears. Not only loud, but also steady. The game with the wind in the strait that separates Paros with Antiparos is not over. Ideal destination for those who love water sports – especially kite surf and wind surf. Paros hosted the world championship for many years. Take part in the organized courses organized on the beaches of Golden Coast and Punta.
Unique beaches for every taste
Endless, golden, calm or organized. Paros has many distinct beaches: Golden Beach, Santa Maria, Punta, Kalogeros, Kolimbithres. You will have difficulty choosing, but you will surely find someone who will love it forever.
Ai-Giannis the Detis
In this bay of Paros, known as the bay of Ai-Giannis of Detis, time is going slower, your calm enchants and the white spot of the monastery shines the landscape. You can swim, walk and contemplate.
Lefkes: in the yard of “serenity”
Lime and marble. Agreement in white. An embrace of houses and courtyards, built amphitheatrically on the side of a mountain. All in harmonious coexistence: Cycladic architecture, neoclassical or orthodox buildings, boutique accommodation. Walk on them by leaving your car, browse through the tranquil alleys and do not miss the feast of the carnival (as the snails say) held there every August.
Marpissa and Prodromos: except the beaten
Two villages in the hinterland worth visiting. In Prodromos the entrance of the village has a vaulted roof and a bell tower. Walk the narrow streets and enjoy the traditional Cycladic houses. Then visit Marpissa, another 16th century village with traditional windmills and unique beauty and history churches. Two villages really sightseeing!
