The Mycenaean Acropolis in Kolymbithres Paros: The hill overlooking Kolymbithres is the site where remains of the Mycenaean Acropolis are found from the 13th century BC. Parts of the remains were brought to light in 1975 by archaeologist Dimitris Skilardis. Paros was quite powerful and played an important role in the Greek history while the quality and magnitude of the Mycenaean architecture and the size of the fort with walls over 3 meters strengthen this assumption.

The archaeologists believe that this Mycenaean settlement was set on fire when enemies attacked it. It must have been abandoned by the end of 13th century BC. Years later, in the 10th century BC, a Geometric settlement was erected in the same place. It once again continued being an important town till the Archaic Period. The reason for the later and definite abandonment of the settlement is still unknown.
The Mycenaean Acropolis is located in Kolymbithres.
