History and Culture in Mykonos

Mykonos owes its name to the son of the King of Delos, Mykons. According to mythology, Hercules, in one of his twelve tasks, was fighting the Giants. Having slain them, he threw them in the sea where they turned into huge rocks, forming the island of Mykonos.

Visit the archaeological museum of Mykonos which includes findings from excavations on the island and the surrounding small islets, such as small statues, ceramic vases, and jewellery.

The Castle of Gyzi is located on a hill above Ano Mera, in the island of Mykonos. Although it stands in ruins today, its location offers a gorgeous view of the island. The Monastery of Paleokastro is located on a hill above Ano Mera. Constructed in the 18th Century, this monastery still works as a nunnery. The island is littered with churches, museums and archaeological sites just waiting to be explored.
