Iraklia Architecture

Iraklia is known as one of the smallest Greek islands. It belongs to the group of Eastern Cyclades and has a truly traditional character and natural ambiance that has been preserved throughout the ages. The architecture of Iraklia has many similarities to the Cycladic architecture of other islands.

Both settlements of Iraklia island, Agios Georgios and Panagia, are built according to the traditional style, with labyrinth streets, small whitewashed houses and preserved churches with blue round domes.

More or less, Iraklia has the common Cycladic architecture like the rest of the neighboring islands, surrounded by the beautiful landscape. Houses are mostly made of stone and wood and distinguish for their true character as they spread out in the villages and the countryside.
