Panagia Paraportiani is a unique and famous church located in the charming chora of Mykonos. Its name translates to “Our Lady of the Side Gate” and it is one of the most photographed churches in Greece. 

The church is actually five different chapels combined into one large structure, with its distinctive white-washed walls and blue-domed roofs making it an iconic feature of the island. 

Despite its popularity as a tourist destination, the church remains an important place of worship for locals and visitors alike, with regular religious services held throughout the year. 

The church is a prime example of Cycladic architecture, with its simple lines and elegant design reflecting the influence of Byzantine, Venetian, and Ottoman cultures.
