Paros Marpissa Village
Marpissa Paros: The picturesque village of Marpissa stands on the hill of Kefalos, just above Piso Livadi, 18 km south-east of Parikia. Built amphitheatrically (like most of the Cycladic villages) around the hill, Marpissa is a traditional Cycladic village with whitewashed cubic houses, standing among narrow streets, churches and windmills.
It is one of the few authentic villages of Paros and Marpissa doesn't offer a lot of accommodation and it is a constitutive element of its incredible charm and unspoiled beauty. Marpissa is near the waterfront and close to the beaches of Logaras, Punda, Piso Livadi, Golden Beach and Drios. Ruins of an old castle and of the Monastery of Agios Antonios (Monastery of Saint Antoine) can be found on the top of the hill of Kefalos.
