Our next stop was the island of Mykonos. No ancient sites to visit, just chance to stroll around the pretty Greek island town. All the streets are very narrow with very little room for the cars.
They get even narrower........
and the alleyways narrower still.
The windmills of Mykonos.
Looking between the windmills, our ship can be seen in the distance.
I have seen this unusual looking church in photos before but did not know the story of it. Below, I have copied some text from the Greek tourist site which describes it.
The special thing about this church is that it actually consists of five small churches that were built one on top or next to the other. The church of Agios Efstathios is the centre of this complex, surrounded by the churches of Agios Anargyros, Agios Sozon and Agia Anastasia. On top of these four churches, there is the church of Virgin Mary, which looks like a dome.
The five churches were not contructed at once, but gradually along centuries. The oldest church is Agios Anargyros, which was built in late 14th century. The other churches were built in the 16th and the 17th century, while there were renovations till 1920.
