Chora Mykonos or Mykonos Town called, is a typical Cycladic village built amphitheatrically. It has whitewashed cubic houses with wooden coloured doors, windows and balconies, narrow streets forming a labyrinth, beautiful churches, lovely chapels and purple bougainvilleas contrasting with the bright white of the buildings walls. The heart of the city is closed to traffic during most of the day which make the walk among the labyrinth streets particularly agreeable, especially during early morning when the city is calmer for most of the people are at the beaches or still sleeping after a long night of clubbing. The main town can be traveled all on foot and beware that it is simply not practical to enter the main part of town on scooters/cars because of the narrowness of the lanes. During evening hours the main roads into town are blocked off. Numerous cafes, chic boutiques, souvenir shops and fine jeweleries are helping the visitor to enjoy its days in the beautiful capital of Mykonos. Worth seeing in Chora, or Chora Mykonos, is the church complex of Panagia Paraportiani which has been recognized as a national cultural monument and is a superb representation of Cycladic architecture. Those beautiful churches are located on the hill of the old Venetian castle (Kastro).
