This is one of the most known churches of Mykonos. It is unique because
almost everyone knows it. It's photo used to be a logo of Mykonos island and
also Greece for a long time. You probably have come across a poster of that
church at some Greek travel office. The church is one of the most

looking very interesting as time has contributed to the deterioration and
