Introduction to Mykonos, Greece
In the middle of the deep blue Aegean Sea, Mykonos is one of the smallest of the Cyclades islands, but surely the most beautiful.
The landscape is wild, the beaches are golden and the welcome in the bars and cafés is warm and friendly. For many visitors, the beach and the bars are enough, but there is also a lot to see here. The Archaeological Museum was built in 1902, initially to display finds that were discovered on Rhenia in 1898, but it now has a vast number of artefacts – mainly pottery – from the late Hellenic period.
The Aegean Maritime Museum is devoted to restoring historic objects: in its garden is the Armenistis lighthouse from 1890 and reproductions of ancient marble memorials for sailors who were lost at sea. The museum has restored the 1940 sailing ship Evangelistria and the cable-laying vessel Thalis o Milesios (built in 1909) which are now in the Hellenic Navy’s Museum at the Paleo Phaliro marina.
