Parikia – Paros, Greece

On our last day in Paros, we headed west to Parikia, the capital of Paros. If you are travelling to Paros, this is where you would arrive by ferry.

It is much bigger than Naousa but still has the charm of the little Cyclades villages, with white and blue houses, cobbled streets and plenty of boutiques.

As with all other Cyclades towns, explore the place by getting lost in the little streets, enjoying a drink at a terrace and doing a bit of shopping.

Meet some of the locals, some of them are busy having a nap or people watching…

One sight not to miss is the church of Panagia Ekatontapiliani. It was built during the Byzantine era and it’s architecture really stands out with sand colour stones.

After days at the beach or exploring quiet villages it was nice to have a bit of the ‘city buzz’ back.
