Milos is the largest island in Cyclades and famous for its magnificent beaches.
The civilization of Milos is considered to be as important as that of Crete
and it spans 5000 years, with the Phoenicians being its first inhabitants.
The island is famous around the world for the statue of Aphrodite, Venus
de Milo, housed today at the Louvre museum in Paris. The visitor in Milos will be impressed by the picturesque towns of Adamas, Apollonia and Plaka, which is also the capital city of the island. From the castle of Plaka (Hora) the view at sunset is breathtaking, while only two kilometers away lies
perhaps the island's most impressive monument, Milos catacombs.
