Milos is the southernmost island of West Cyclades. Due to its volcanic background, Milos has special geology and unique beaches.
The strong volcanic eruption that happened in Milos millions of years ago formatted its present landscape with reddish cliffs, soft sandy beaches, and underwater sea caves.

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.
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.
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 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.
The church and the cells of this very old and historical monastery are in 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.
Panagia Korfiatissa is located on a breathtaking site in Plaka, overlooking at the deep blue sea and the neighbouring islands. The church was built in 1820 with building materials brought from the abandoned churches of the old main town and it is dedicated to the Virgin Mary.
