Paros Church and Monastery Photos.

There are many churches and monasteries worth visiting dotted around this interesting and scenic Greek Island of Paros in The Cyclades.

Ekatontapiliani, Parikia, Paros Island in Greece. inside the Ekatontapiliani at Parikia, Paros, Greece We have been on holiday to quite a few Islands in Greece and on most we have found loads of small churches as well as old monasteries dotted around the countryside. Sometimes these are way up on the top of almost inaccessible hills and mountains or are well hidden on the sides of gorges or ravines - and of course sometimes they are located simply alongside a track or path so that you can actually get to look at them with ease. Paros certainly has it's fair share of small churches to visit whilst on holiday and fortunately many can be easily reached especially if you are out hiking or cycling. There are also several monasteries dotted around - some are mostly unused and really old looking - almost as if close to falling down like the lovely buildings of Aghios Minas, whilst others are in pristine condition and still functioning fully as a monastery.

Paros main church in Parikia - the Ekatontapiliani

- this must be an essential visit for anyone on holiday or visiting Paros - hopefully our photographs will show why we think this. Perhaps the best time to visit and look round this church is in the early evening when many of the day trippers have disappeared - also it's usually a bit cooler then too. You can wander around most of the church both inside and outside - also we did ask if it was ok before we took some photographs whilst inside the church and were told this was fine. All you have to do of course is be considerate of anyone who is worshipping whilst you are wandering around.

Not content with having an abundance of monasteries on the Island,

Paros also has one or two lovely churches to look at.

Quite a few of these Paros churches are un-named simply because we could not find anything out about them. This is also the case on actual location since quite a few photographs were taken whilst we were out walking and not actually near any named location that we could see.
