All sightseeing in Milos
Antimilos is a small island with steep and hostile coasts, where a rare species of wild goat lives. In antiquity the islet was called Efira. Excursion boats connect Adamas, the port of Milos, to Antimilos.
The Archaeological Museum of Milos is housed in a Neoclassical building in Plaka. Established in 1985, this museum hosts findings from excavations around the island, such as small statues, ceramic vases, coins, jewelry and others. It also hosts a copy of Venus of Milos, the famous statue that is today exhibited in Louvre Museum.
Due to its volcanic geology, Milos has a lot of caves along its coastline. These caves can be visited by boat from the port of the island.
The church of Agia Triada (Holy Trinity) is located in the centre of Adamas, the port of Milos. This church dates from the 17th century and it houses a small ecclesiastical museum.
The church of Panagia Portiani is located in the centre of the village and it is dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin. It dates from the 17th century and it is a preserved monument.
The Conference Centre of Milos was established by Katerina Kyriakopoulos. It is housed in an old kaolin processing factory.
The small Ecclesiastical Museum of Milos is found in the church of the Holy Trinity in Adamas village. It includes rare exhibits from the Venetian times till today.
This museum was established to help promote the effects of mining in the history of Milos and to display the mineral wealth of the island. It is located at the waterfront in Adamas.
The church and the cells of this very old and historical monastery are in a very good condition. This monastery got its name from a miracle (as it is said by the inhabitants of Milos): some locals locked themselves in the church to escape from the pirates and prayed to Saint John to close the door with an iron bar. The prayer was answered and the pirates couldn't enter the church.
The mines are located on Paliorema (Therichia) beach. Not much is known about the history of the sulfur mines but one gets the impression that it may have been quite a brisk operation in those times. Unfortunately this was not protected and now the mines show the wear and tear of time and weather.
Only few ruins have survived today from the Venetian Castle of Milos. It stands on a hill overlooking Plaka and the port of the island.
This is one of the most significant monuments on Milos that date from the Roman times. This underground complex is formed by three interconnected catacombs.
The Folklore Museum is located close to the Archaeological Museum of Milos, in Plaka. It is housed in a 19th century mansion and it hosts items of everyday use, traditional clothing, furniture, tools and other folk pieces.
This theatre was probably constructed in the Hellenistic times. However, today only the Roman phase of this monument survives. It is located close to Catacombs.
