The beautiful church sits in the middle of a square very near to the port, so if you were waiting for a ferry instead of going to a cafe you can wander around the church. It has two stunning bell towers, and inside the arches and the stone work is lovely. When I went there was a mass being said... More

Very good museum at the Church of 99 or 100 doors or gates, displaying many of the painted doors or gates. I'm reasonably certain there were about 40 available for viewing on the day I visited. Still, a very impressive collection of religious folk art paintings. For the price of museum admission, one is allowed into the ancient baptistery with... More

Paros has several little churches but this cathedral is something. If you are on shorts or bathing suits you will have to wear a skirt provided by the church itself and hanged outside.Amazing silver artwork.You also have the Byzantine museum nearby.

We stumble upon this cathedral when walking around in Parikia. Was a lovely find, especially since it is a functioning attraction.

A must see historical hidden gem. A peaceful haven away from hustle and bustle of the port. Try and find the 100 doors?

You cannot go to Paros without going also to the cathedral. It is beautiful, also do not miss the museum and go upstairs to see the women quarters. Take at least 1h30 to see it all

Do not miss visiting this beautiful church when in Parikia. It was lovely to wander around the courtyard and then to sit down in the silence and admire the beauty of its interior.

The Greek Orthodox are very traditional, and it is a pleasure to witness the gestures of familiarity - that is, the familiar but casual "cheek" kiss of the idols and Gods portrayed in gold around the cathedral. Beautifully designed and decorated, women used to be seated in the upper balconies during ceremonies,... More
