Fourkovouni Village in Milos: The village of Fourkovouni is located on the north side of Milos Bay. It is a traditional fishing village with picturesque small white buildings with colorful doors right next to the sea. These houses, called syrmata, can be seen in many settlements across the island, unique to Milos. They were used as secondary homes of fishermen, with the ground floor used as a storage room for boats and the first floor as a sleeping area.
