MILOS

Milos is a volcanic Greek island in the Aegean Sea, just north of the Sea of Crete. Milos is the southwesternmost island in the Cyclades group.


The island is famous for the Venus de Milo, a statue of Aphrodite, now in the Louvre.


Milos' most picturesque village is Plaka, also known as Chora, perched on a rocky outcrop above the main port of Adamantas. A path leads up to the Venetian castle at the top, which is also home to the Church of Panagia Skiniotissa. On the way you will pass the gorgeous Church of Panagia Thalassitra. Catch the wonderful sunset from the castle, or from a balcony overlooking the sea at the Church of Panagia Korfiatissa.


The island's Archeological Museum is housed in a building designed by Ernst Ziller, with a reproduction of the Venus de Milo gracing the entrance (the original is in the Louvre in Paris).
