Panagia Paraportiani

The Church of Panagia Paraportiani  is situated in the neighbourhood of Kastro, in the town of Chora. Its name literally means "Our Lady of the Side Gate" in Greek, as its entrance was found in the side gate of the entrance to the Kastro area.

The building of this church started in 1425 and was not completed until the 17th century. This impressive, whitewashed church actually consists of five separate churches attached all together: the four churches (dedicated to Saint Eustathios, Saint Sozon, Saints Anargyroi and Saint Anastasia) are all on the ground and constitute the base of the fifth church that has been built on top of them.

Peter the pelican

At 1958 a local fisherman found a pelican who was hurt and took him back to the island to take care of him. After the pelican got well he never left the island becoming the mascot of the island. His name was Petros. The pelican died  from car accident at 1985. Since then Mykonos has  never been without a pelican. The new one has been named Petros as an honor of the first pelican of Mykonos. You will find him walking around Mykonos Town and eating small fishes from the restaurants nearby.
