The unique building, which began construction in the 14th century, but was not completed until the 17th century, actually comprises of five churches, each one designed in a different style. The four churches found on the ground floor combine Byzantine, Vernacular, Traditional and Western style architecture with the fifth main temple built in later years on the floor above forming the beautiful domed roof. It is an idyllic setting for photographs catching the glorious sunsets across the Mediterranean Ocean in the background.
It goes without saying that holidaymakers will be able to enjoy swimming and sunbathing on some of the sandiest beaches of Mykonos such as Agios Ioannis and Paradise. However, just a short distance from the Agios Stefanos beach located next to Tourlous, the new harbor of Mykonos, stretches the extraordinary Houlakia Beach which is carpeted with smooth rounded pebbles and stones not found anywhere else on the island. The beach has a small sandy area with a hotel and restaurant and there is also a footpath along the rocky shoreline where visitors can admire the dramatic landscape and splendid views of Delos Island.
