More villages in Milos
Tripiti has a long and rich history. Below the village lies the catacombs, the ancient theatre and the site where the statue of Venus de Milo was found. The village itself is lovely with long narrow alleys lined with traditional Cycladic houses. The beautiful church of Agios Nikolaos is seen from a long distance. Below Tripiti is the unique coastal village Klima. Don´t miss Klima!
Mandrakia is in many respects similar to Firopotamos. The differences between the villages is that there are more boathouses in Mandrakia and more people lives there. The small port with all the beautiful houses in all the colours of the rainbow is well protected by a breakwater. There is rooms to rent and right at the seafront lies a cosy taverna.
The very beautiful village Mandrakia.
If you continue on foot from Mandrakia (to the right) you come to some beautiful rock formations. Continuing further you will eventually arrive at Sarakiniko.
The isolated and abandoned village of Zefiria lies on the way to Paleochori beach. Zefiria was Milos' capital for a very long time ago, today it is a small village thrown in the middle of nowhere, and is not much to see.
Firopotamos at the north-eastern coast, is one of several small boathouse villages. Firopotamos may not be counted as a real village, but more as a small fishing hamlet. Here you can study the traditional boathouses which is carved right out of the rocks. It has a beach and a beautiful church.
