Η Πάρος, το πανέμορφο και κοσμοπολίτικο Αιγαιοπελαγίτικο νησί, ανήκει στους δημοφιλής καλοκαιρινούς προορισμούς. Οι φυσικές καλλονές του τόπου, η παραδοσιακή κυκλαδίτικη ομορφιά των οικισμών και η άψογη τουριστική οργάνωση του νησιού, σε συνδυασμό πάντα με τη ζεστή κι εγκάρδια φιλοξενία των κατοίκων, δημιουργούν τις κατάλληλες προϋποθέσεις για αλησμόνητες διακοπές.
Βρίσκεται στο κέντρο των Κυκλάδων και θεωρείται ένα από τα ομορφότερα και γραφικότερα νησιά του συμπλέγματος. Είναι το τρίτο σε μέγεθος νησί, μετά τη Νάξο και την Άνδρο.
Η ιστορία της Πάρου χάνεται στα βάθη των αιώνων. Από την αρχαιότητα, λόγο της γεωγραφικής της κυρίως θέσης, πρωταγωνιστούσε στα ιστορικά δρώμενα που καθόρισαν την πορεία των Κυκλάδων. Υπήρξε διοικητικό και εμπορικό κέντρο του Αιγαίου και σταυροδρόμι πολλών πολιτισμών.
Γνώρισε περιόδους μεγάλης ακμής και υπέστη πολλά δεινά από τους κατακτητές που κατά περιόδους κυριάρχησαν στο νησί. Όλο το πολυσήμαντο παρελθόν, αποτυπώνεται στα ερείπια των αρχαιολογικών χώρων, στα ιστορικά μνημεία και στα μουσεία που φιλοξενούν τα αρχαιολογικά ευρήματα.
Οι μεγαλοπρεπής βυζαντινές εκκλησίες και τα μοναστήρια με την κυκλαδίτικη αρχιτεκτονική που συναντά κανείς κατά την περιήγησή του στο νησί, φανερώνουν τη βαθιά πίστη των Παριανών.
Η Πάρος, διαθέτει αμέτρητες φυσικές ομορφιές. Οι ειδυλλιακές παραλίες της με τα καταγάλανα νερά και την απέραντη αμμουδιά, προσφέρονται για κολύμπι και θαλάσσια σπορ.
Στην Παροικιά, τη γοητευτική πρωτεύουσα, θα χαρείτε τους περιπάτους στα στενά καλντερίμια, θα δείτε μερικά από τα σημαντικά αξιοθέατα του νησιού και το βράδυ θα διασκεδάσετε στα ξενυχτάδικα.
Στη Νάουσα, θα δείτε το γραφικότερο λιμανάκι του Αιγαίου και θα γευματίζετε με θέα το ωραιότερο ηλιοβασίλεμα του νησιού.

Ανακαλύψτε με μια ματιά τα καλύτερα πράγματα που μπορείτε να δείτε και να κάνετε στην Πάρο

Το πιο σημαντικό βυζαντινό μνημείο του νησιού είναι η εκκλησία της Παναγίας της Εκατονταπυλιανής που προσελκύει κάθε χρόνο χιλιάδες προσκυνητές. Η εκκλησία που χτίστηκε από την ίδια Αγία Ελένη και στο εσωτερικό βρίσκεται το μοναδικό αρχαίο και καλύτερα σωζόμενο βαπτιστήριο που συναντάμε στην ορθόδοξη ανατολή.Στην Παροικιά – όπως σε όλο το νησί – θα συναντήσετε πολλές εκκλησίες μικρού και μεγάλου, που παρουσιάζουν αρχιτεκτονικό και θρησκευτικό ενδιαφέρον.Επίσης, αξίζει να επισκεφθείτε το αρχαιολογικό και βυζαντινό μουσείο.Όμως, εκτός από τις βόλτες και το κολύμπι στις υπέροχες αμμώδεις παραλίες της Παροικιάς, η πρωτεύουσα είναι διάσημη και για τη νυχτερινή της ζωή. Οι επιλογές διασκέδασης ικανοποιούν όλες τις προτιμήσεις

Η Νάουσα, το αλλοτινό ήσυχο ψαροχώρι της Πάρου, βρίσκεται στη βόρεια πλευρά του νησιού και σε απόσταση 10 χλμ. από τη πρωτεύουσα. Είναι κτισμένη γύρω από ένα πανέμορφο, ασφαλές λιμανάκι. Το γραφικό αυτό λιμάνι είναι ένα πραγματικό στολίδι του νησιού και για πολλούς το ωραιότερο του Αιγαίου.
Η όμορφη κωμόπολη της Νάουσας χάρη στην αυθεντική κυκλαδίτικη ταυτότητά της και τις φυσικές ομορφιές της αποτελεί αγαπημένο προορισμό των Ελλήνων αλλά και των αλλοδαπών επισκεπτών του νησιού. Όλοι γοητεύονται από τη λάμψη της και θέλουν να παρατείνουν την επίσκεψή τους σ’ αυτήν. Έτσι, η Νάουσα εξελίχθηκε σε ένα πολυσύχναστο τουριστικό θέρετρο. Στην περιοχή υπάρχουν αρκετά ξενοδοχεία και πολλές τουριστικές επιχειρήσεις.
Η βόλτα στον παραδοσιακό οικισμό της Νάουσας είναι μια μοναδική εμπειρία. Περπατώντας κανείς στα στενά πλακόστρωτα δρομάκια και παρατηρώντας την ομοιομορφία στην αρχιτεκτονική δόμηση των σπιτιών και των εκκλησιών που συναντά, καταλαβαίνει τη μοναδικότητα της κυκλαδίτικης ομορφιάς.

Η παραλία Σάντα Μαρία απέχει 2 μόλις χιλιόμετρα από τη γραφική Νάουσα. Βρίσκεται σε μια πανέμορφη τοποθεσία και διακρίνεται για την κατάξανθη αμμουδιά και τα καθάρια νερά της. Είναι ιδανική για όσους αποφεύγουν τις πολυσύχναστες πλαζ. Αν και δεν ανήκει στις κοσμικές πλαζ της Πάρου, είναι άρτια οργανωμένη και οι φίλοι – κυρίως – του windsurfing μπορούν να εξασκηθούν στη καταγάλανη θάλασσα. Στον μικρό κι απάνεμο κολπίσκο της Σάντα Μαρίας οι ρομαντικοί μπορούν να ζήσουν αξέχαστες στιγμές απολαμβάνοντας τον ήλιο και την ηρεμία του Αιγαίου.
