A beguiling Grecian island

The word picturesque must have been invented for this beguiling island, with its windmills, domed churches, and houses in traditional Cycladic style, gleaming white in the bright sunshine, embellished with blue trim, and bedecked with brilliant hues of bougainvillea, and hibiscus.

Paros was known in ancient times for the fine white marble shipped to other parts of Greece for use by all those classical sculptors, and for local construction as well. On a rock by the sea are the remains of a medieval castle, built almost entirely of the marble remains of an ancient temple. Other remnants can be found scattered about the island.
