Milos Tripiti

General information

On the island's northern side, Tripiti in Milos is a small picturesque village with great views of the sea, well-known sights, accommodation options, and a handful of restaurants, just two kilometers south of Plaka.
Tripiti, earning its name from its soft volcanic rock formations, is a village boasting wide landscape views over the Gulf of Milos (facing Klima beach) due to its altitude and placement on the side of the hill. It is next to two revered sights of the island, namely the Ancient Catacombs and the grandiose Ancient Roman Theater of Milos.

A traditional place of residence, Tripiti offers a plethora of old whitewashed windmills, which were used for wheat and seed grinding but have now become studios or hotel apartments. Plus, right at the center of the town, one will find the imposing church of Agios Nikolaos, hosting various happenings throughout the summertime, such as the custom of jumping over the fire!

    Historically important
    Tripiti is historically important village for the following three things:
    - Ancient theatre
    - Remnants of ancient Milos
    - Catacombs
    So, it's an absolute must. Don't go to Milos without visiting these three landmarks.
    Its appearance is nothing special, but you go there for these three things.

    Get perfect enjoyment
    Catacombs, Klima, theatre - this will be your visit "package". Theatre is not something that spectacular alone, but combine it with near catacombs, remnant of ancient Milos and Klima below, and you get yourself perfect enjoyment.

    I must admit that at first I thought catacombs were some modern art, made as an attraction for tourists.
    Oh, how wrong I was...
    I am not going to narrate about its history, ways of laying bodies and so on. There are detailed descriptions on Greeka and the very own site this attraction has.
    I will just say it's worth visit.
    Have in mind that only groups of seven people may enter for one tour inside (and you go with the guide; the entrance is not "free"), so it can happen that you wait a little, but if you are going during season, it will be a few-minutes waiting.

    I came back in Italy but my soul remined in Tripiti, in the windmill of Evripides, the family which owns the restaurant "Methismeni Politia" (Drunken City).
    At down I saw an old man going slowly to the port with his donkey, in the evening I met Mrs Evripides who spoke me only Greek and I felt that if I had payed enough attention I would have found the way to understand, inside my soul. She gived me five eggs from her chicken and I felt she was the Ancient Cycladic Goddess of life, death, regeneration.
    She had two sons and five nephew, pente pedakia, she said, and I told I have two kores.
    When I sat down on the stones of the garden, they were so warm and soft, as they were a sofa.
