Paros Local products

Paros is famous for its high-quality Parian marble, which is white and semi-transparent. It was used for several ancient statues and temples, such as the Venus de Milo, the Temple of Apollo in Delos, and more.

Apart from excellent marble, Paros also produces various fine agricultural products. The local products of Paros are not so different than the products in the other islands of the Cyclades, but Parian specialties exist and are worth trying.
The soft white goat cheese called Mizithra is a pure delight and is used in salads instead of feta cheese, pure with bread, or on pasta and meat dishes. The Gouna is another Parian specialty and consists of salted fish dried under the sun. They are served grilled with a bit of lemon. Finally, the traditional Petimezinia (treacle cookies) and the local pumpkin pie are two delicacies you must taste.
The wines of Paros are quite famous in the rest of Greece for their excellent taste and aroma, too.
