Mykonos is one of the first islands in Greece that made tourist worth of its natural pores, sun and sea. It started to spread its rumor in the middle 1950’s when the first visitors started to arrive in the island. Impressed from the authentic beauty of the houses and the beautiful beaches, turned to be the best advertisers of the island. The residents realizing this difference started to create the proper foundation. 
In the middle 60’s Mykonos was already known as the island of celebrities. All the important personalities from the international jet set were there. It soon became fashion that -luckily-didn’t pass. On the contrary, its rumor spreads every year so as its fans. Travelers wanting to live a bit at these rhythms visit the center every summer and the graphic villages and dance all night in the moonlight…

Dilos is the sacred island of ancient times. It is located 6 n.m southwest of Mykonos. It is a very small rocky island in which, according to the myth Apollo and Artemide, were born by Lito. The myth says that Hera cursed Lito, who was pregnant from Zeus – Hera’s husband – to give birth in an island hidden from the sun. Lito wondered around and suffered until Poseidon felt sorry for her and revealed an island from the depths of the sea. Dilos, that means obvious, was a small shiny island. Apollo and Artemide were born there. This island was the religious and cultural center of ancient times.

Mykonos archaeological museum is located in the west side of the island. This neoclassic building was built in 1902 in order to host the findings of Rinia.
Here you can see a very important collection of tubes, statues and ash vessels from the prehistoric to the afterhellinistic times, statues that came to light after excavations in Rinia and Mykono.
From these exhibits distinguish: the archaic amphora, with anaglyph pictures from Troy and an epitaph column of Tertia Oraria dated from the 2nd century BC. It shows a woman waving her husband. This column was on a sarcophagus made of marble.
The monastery of Panagia Tourliani is located in the graphic village of Ano Mera. It was built by two Parian priests in 1542. Its highly impressive -made of wood- temple was made in Florence. There’s a small museum in its yard where the visitor can see byzantine icons and sacerdotal vestments. The church was named after the priest that discovered Panagia’s icon in the temple.
Mykono’s Laographic museum is located in Kastro and roofed under a traditional building of the18th century. It hosts a remarkable collection of clothing and webs of ancient times, furniture, ceramic items and a very important file of pictures and historic documents.
Τhe traditional windmills in Mykonos are bond with the island’s history. In our days they are a very important sites of the island and many visitors come to see them.
Round, whites, with a flanch roof towards the sea, remind the visitor times that have passed and fill their albums with beautiful and romantic pictures.
Mill-turnstiles used to be factories that alternated agricultural products. In the 19th century the basic source of incomes was the grind of flour. It was forbidden to construct buildings around mill-turnstiles because it hampered its function. In the past there were 16 of them in the island that needed the blow of the wind in order to work.
Ten of them are located southern of the country, between Alefcantra and Neochori. In our days only 10 are saved, the famous “Kato mill-turnstiles” that grind wheat.
In Ano Mera are the “Apano Mill-turnstiles” of the country.
Today Boni’s mill-turnstile is a museum, while others are renovated and inhabited.
It is impressive that people, in order to keep tradition live, built mill-turnstiles next to their houses

Μύκονος. Η κοσμοπολίτισσα των Κυκλάδων. Το διασημότερο νησί της Ελλάδας και ο δημοφιλέστερος προορισμός διακοπών σε παγκόσμιο επίπεδο.
Το νησί των ανέμων, όπως το αποκαλούν, βρίσκεται στο κέντρο σχεδόν του συμπλέγματος των Κυκλαδίτικων νησιών και ανάμεσα στη Τήνο και τη Νάξο. Είναι το κοντινότερο νησί στη Δήλο. Από το λιμάνι της Μυκόνου ξεκινούν τα εκδρομικά καΐκια με προορισμό το ιερό νησί της Αρχαιότητας.
Η Μύκονος είναι ένα από τα πρώτα νησιά της Ελλάδας που αξιοποίησε τουριστικά τους φυσικούς του πόρους, οι οποίοι ήταν και είναι ο ήλιος και η θάλασσα. Αυτά τα στοιχεία προέβαλε από τα μέσα της δεκαετίας του 1950, όταν, δειλά – δειλά, άρχισαν οι πρώτοι παραθεριστές να καταφτάνουν στο νησί. Εντυπωσιασμένοι από την αυθεντική κυκλαδίτικη ομορφιά των οικισμών και από τις υπέροχες παραλίες, αποτέλεσαν τους καλύτερους διαφημιστές του νησιού. Οι Μυκονιάτες συνειδητοποιώντας τη μοναδικότητα του τόπου τους, άρχισαν να δημιουργούν τις κατάλληλες υποδομές.
Έτσι, τη δεκαετία του ’60 η Μύκονος είχε ήδη καθιερωθεί ως το νησί των διασημοτήτων. Όλες οι μεγάλες προσωπικότητες του διεθνούς jet set, παραθέριζαν στη Μύκονο. Γρήγορα έγινε μόδα, που – ευτυχώς – δεν πέρασε. Αντιθέτως, κάθε χρόνο η φήμη της μεγαλώνει και οι θαυμαστές πληθαίνουν. Οι ταξιδιώτες που επιθυμούν να ζήσουν στους ρυθμούς της, κατακλύζουν κάθε καλοκαίρι τα σοκάκια της Χώρας και των γραφικών χωριών, γεμίζουν τις παραλίες με τις φωνές τους και τη νύχτα χορεύουν στο φως του φεγγαριού…
Η Μύκονος είναι η βασίλισσα της διασκέδασης. Εδώ, οι διακοπές σημαίνουν πάρτι. Ένα ατέλειωτο πάρτι που αρχίζει με την άφιξη του επισκέπτη στο λιμάνι και τελειώνει με την αναχώρησή του.
Βέβαια αν κάποιος επιθυμεί και στιγμές ηρεμίας, η Μύκονος δε θα τον απογοητεύσει. Κατά τη περιήγησή του στο νησί θα ανακαλύψει κανείς ερημικές παραλίες και ήσυχα χωριουδάκια.
Κι επειδή, η Μύκονος είναι το νησί της καλοπέρασης, σας προσφέρει και άνετη διαμονή στα πολυτελή ξενοδοχειακά συγκροτήματα που λειτουργούν στη Χώρα και στα τουριστικά θέρετρα, αλλά και στα ενοικιαζόμενα διαμερίσματα και στα studios. Οι τιμές είναι προσιτές για κάθε ταξιδιώτη.
Επισκεφθείτε τη Μύκονο και ζήστε τις διακοπές των ονείρων σας…

Ανακαλύψτε με μια ματιά τα καλύτερα πράγματα που μπορείτε να δείτε και να κάνετε στη Μύκονο

Ο Τούρλος είναι ένας μικρός οικισμός που φημίζεται για την οργανωμένη παραλία του. Πρόκειται για μια πολυσύχναστη, κοσμική αμμουδιά στην οποία θα απολαύσετε το μπάνιο σας και θα εξασκηθείτε στα θαλάσσια σπορ. Βρίσκεται στη βόρεια πλευρά της Μυκόνου σε απόσταση μόλις 2,5 χλμ. από τη Χώρα και προσφέρει πλήθος επιλογών στους επισκέπτες της περιοχής τόσο στον τομές της διαμονής όσο και στη διασκέδαση.

Το αρχαιολογικό μουσείο της Μυκόνου βρίσκεται στη δυτική πλευρά του νησιού. Αυτό το νεοκλασικό κτήριο χτίστηκε το 1902 για να φιλοξενήσει τα ευρήματα της Ρίνια.
Εδώ μπορείτε να δείτε μια πολύ σημαντική συλλογή από σωληνάρια, αγάλματα και στάχτες από την προϊστορική έως την εποχική εποχή, αγάλματα που έρχονται στο φως μετά τις ανασκαφές στη Ρίνια και τη Μύκονο.
Από τα εκθέματα αυτά διακρίνονται: ο αρχαϊκός αμφορέας, με αναγλυφικές εικόνες από την Τροία και μια επιτάφια στήλη της Τερτίας Οριαρίας που χρονολογείται από τον 2ο αιώνα π.Χ. Εμφανίζει μια γυναίκα που κυματίζει τον σύζυγό της. Αυτή η στήλη ήταν σε σαρκοφάγο από μάρμαρο.

Η Χώρα της Μυκόνου, η γοητευτική πρωτεύουσα του κοσμοπολίτικου νησιού, αξίζει τη φήμη της και το αποδεικνύει σε κάθε επισκέπτη της. Αρκεί μια βόλτα στα στενά σοκάκια της για να διαπιστώσει κανείς την ξεχωριστή ομορφιά της. Η παραδοσιακή κυκλαδίτικη αρχιτεκτονική θα σας εντυπωσιάσει.
Περπατήστε στα στενά δαιδαλώδη δρομάκια με τα παραδοσιακά λιθόστρωτα και παρατηρείστε την ομοιόμορφη αρχιτεκτονική των κτιρίων. Χαρακτηριστικό τους είναι ότι στη δόμηση των κατοικιών επικρατεί η ευθεία γραμμή.
Μικρά κάτασπρα σπίτια με μπλε παράθυρα και ξύλινα μπαλκόνια δίνουν το στίγμα της Αιγαιοπελαγίτης αρχοντιάς. Οι γλάστρες με τα πολύχρωμα ευωδιαστά λουλούδια φροντίζουν για το άρωμα των αναμνήσεών μας.
Και καθώς θα τριγυρίζετε στα γραφικά καλντερίμια θα συναντήσετε μεγαλοπρεπής εκκλησίες και μικρά ξωκλήσια. Άλλο ένα χαρακτηριστικό των Κυκλάδων. Η βαθιά πίστη των κατοίκων που αποτυπώνεται στις πολλές εκκλησιές που υπάρχουν σε κάθε νησί, πόλη και χωριό.
Στη Χώρα και συγκεκριμένα στον οικισμό του Κάστρου, δεσπόζει η Παναγία η Παραπορτιανή, η οποία είναι αναγνωρισμένη ως Εθνικό Μνημείο. Προσκυνήστε τη χάρη της και θαυμάστε την εξαιρετική αρχιτεκτονική του ναού.

Το Λαογραφικό Μουσείο της Μυκόνου βρίσκεται στο Κάστρο και στεγάζεται σε ένα παραδοσιακό κτίριο του 18ου αιώνα. Φιλοξενεί μια αξιόλογη συλλογή ειδών ένδυσης και ιστών της αρχαιότητας, έπιπλα, κεραμικά αντικείμενα και ένα πολύ σημαντικό αρχείο εικόνων και ιστορικών εγγράφων.

Οι παραδοσιακοί ανεμόμυλοι στη Μύκονο είναι δεσμοί με την ιστορία του νησιού. Σήμερα είναι πολύ σημαντικές τοποθεσίες του νησιού και πολλοί επισκέπτες έρχονται να τους δουν.
Στρογγυλά, λευκά, με οροφή στη θάλασσα, υπενθυμίζουν στους επισκέπτες τους χρόνους που έχουν περάσει και γεμίζουν τα άλμπουμ τους με πανέμορφες και ρομαντικές εικόνες.
Τα μίνι-turnstiles αποτελούσαν εργοστάσια εναλλασσόμενων γεωργικών προϊόντων. Τον 19ο αιώνα η βασική πηγή εισοδήματος ήταν η άλεση του αλεύρου. Απαγόρευσε να κατασκευάσει κτίρια γύρω από μύλους-turnstiles επειδή παρεμπόδιζε τη λειτουργία του. Στο παρελθόν υπήρχαν 16 από αυτούς στο νησί που χρειάζονταν το χτύπημα του ανέμου για να δουλέψουν.
Δέκα από αυτά βρίσκονται νότια της χώρας, ανάμεσα στην Αλεφκανρά και το Νεοχώρι. Στις μέρες μας σώζονται μόνο 10, το περίφημο “Κάτω μύλο-turnstiles” που αλέθουν σιτάρι.

It started to spread its rumor in the middle 1950’s when the first visitors started to arrive in the island. Impressed from the authentic beauty of the houses and the beautiful beaches, turned to be the best advertisers of the island. The residents realizing this difference started to create the proper foundation. 
In the middle 60’s Mykonos was already known as the island of celebrities. All the important personalities from the international jet set were there. It soon became fashion that -luckily-didn’t pass. On the contrary, its rumor spreads every year so as its fans. Travelers wanting to live a bit at these rhythms visit the center every summer and the graphic villages and dance all night in the moonlight… 
Mykonos is the queen of fun. Here vacations mean party. An endless party that starts when the visitor arrives in the island and ends the moment he leaves. 
Of course if someone wants just to relax, Mykonos won’t let him down. During his tour around the island he will discover dessert beaches and quiet villages. But because Mykonos is the island of pleasure, will provide you comfort staying in luxurious hotels in the country, in rooms to let and in studios. Prices are available for every visitor. Visit Mykono and have the holidays of your dreams
