Milos Plaka Village

Rate:
   

Plaka Village Milos: Plaka is the present capital of Milos, and was founded in 1800. The village spreads on the sides of the hill of the area, uniting the villages of Plakes, Triovassalos, Pera Triovassalos and Tripiti. The village has a traditional Cycladic architecture, with whitewashed houses, coloured windows and doors, balconies full of flowers and greenery and narrow white streets.

From Plaka one can enjoy a magnificent view of the Gulf of Milos. Plaka began to develop after the destruction of Ancient Hora, when the increasing number of refugees could not fit within the walls of Kastro. The new village was built from material brought by the new settlers from their ancient houses and the ruined city. It was named Plaka because the land on which it was built was really flat (plaka means flat stone). In this lovely village, visitors can see some nice old churches as well as a folk and an archaeological museum.
