Paros, the jewel of the Aegean. A traditional Greek island that will make you feel exclusive when you want to, but also will allow you to slow down, feel the bliss and enjoy amazing food and its white sand beaches. But remember you are in Greece, which means that among the bronzed beauties and beach parties, there is history that dates back a few millennia. Paros is said to have been founded by St. Helen, Emperor Constantine’s mother, on her pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Recessed two blocks from the port and lending credence to the story is the beautiful and massive Cathedral of Ekatontapiliani (“Church of 100 Arches”), which was built in A.D. 327. Actually, there are 99 arches and the locals are waiting for a miracle to take place so the last one can appear.
Roam with me thru my pictures and get a taste of what this Cycladic beauty has to offer.
