The Museum of Byzantine Art in Naoussa Paros: The Byzantine Museum of Paros is housed inside the renovated monastery of Agios Athanasios.
In this museum, extraordinary artworks dating to prehistoric and Roman times, which constitute a significant part of the history of the Cyclades islands, are on display.

Most of the objects of art appear smooth, rigid and like being suspended. The eyes are always large. The backgrounds are most of the time painted golden. The style of Byzantine art was clear and simple.

The church that hosts the museum boasts some breathtaking frescoes and paintings. Entering the yard, you will see several architectural parts from different sides of the ancient town, statues and other findings. Skillful craftsmanship in woodwork, Roman sculptures and icons painted by local artists can also be admired at the museum.

Public transport: The central bus station of the island is located at the main Port of Paros (Parikia). There are several buses from Parikia to Naoussa during the day. Consider that time schedules might change according to the season. Check the official timetables here.
