ABOUT VACATION IN MILOS

Milos is the most southerly island in the Western Cyclades. It is notable for its volcanic soil and for the rich deposits of minerals that lie beneath. It has a distinctive horseshoe shape.

The civilisation of Milos is considered to be as ancient as that of Crete, and spans a period of at least 5000 years.

Its fame spread throughout the world thanks to the masterpiece of the Venus de Milo, a statue found buried on the island in the 19th century, now exhibited in the Louvres Museum in Paris.

Adamas, one of the safest natural harbours in the Aegean, is a particularly charming spot, with whitewashed houses, cobbled alleys, balconies crammed with flower-pots and fragrant tamarisks which have been extolled by the poets.

Milos or Plaka, capital of the island today stands on a hillside overlooking the sea at the foot of the castle. It is a most attractive town, with architecture in the characteristic Cycladic style.

The Archaeological Museum has a copy of the Venus de Milo as well as others finds from various periods. The Historical and Folklore Museum has a collection of folk artefacts, sample of the island's minerals, photographs and historical documents of the greatest interest.
