The scene of the mythical battle between Zeus
and the Titans, the island of Mykonos is named In honour of Apollo’s grandson, Mykon. The island’s full time population is only
around 9,000 people, but it has been a popular tourist destination since the 1950s and is
well known for its beaches and it’s large number of bars, restaurants and nightclubs. One of Mykonos’s signature landmarks are the
16th century windmills that were until recently used to mill wheat and produce bread for the
locals. These are a striking feature of Mykonos and have sweeping views of the village of
Chora and the entire harbour. Mykonos Town, Chora, or little Venice as it
is better known, is a picturesque medieval town that features a striking waterfront set
amongst the traditional historic buildings. Thanks to the strict building regulations,
Mykonos town has retained its charming maze of small lanes, whitewashed steps and traditional
architecture.
