Paros is one of the islands of the Cyclades group which is located in the southern part of Greece. This island is home to around 12,800 inhabitants, most of who live in the capital and the main harbour, Parikia, while others live in the smaller villages.
Paros has a pleasant climate all through the year. The winters are mild with average temperatures at 14°C and the occasional rain. Summers are quite warm with the average temperature at 27°C; ‘Meltemi’ a cool northern wind which blows over the island during summer brings the much needed respite from the heat.
The single peak of Mount Profitis Elias rises in the centre of the island. Paros owes its early prosperity to the large quantities of marble found in this mountain. Known as the Parian marble, it was in great demand by sculptors in Greece and was exported for many centuries.

Overall Guide : The harbour of Parikia is the gateway to the Cyclades islands. It is home to one of the country’s finest cathedrals from the Byzantine era, Panayia Ekatondapiliani Cathedral. The impressive dome and the altar screen are the best features of... more the cathedral. Its museum displays an extensive range of religious relics and other articles. A little away from Parikia is the ‘Valley of Butterflies’; it can be reached by bus or for a medieval feel, hire a mule. The butterflies have been coming to this valley for the past 300 years. But, they can be seen in large groups only in June. Naoussa is the island’s resort area with numerous hotels and some of the best beaches. It hosts the World Cup Windsurfing Championship every year. Lefkes, a charming village in the interiors, has maintained the feel of a medieval village with most of its original buildings and streets still intact.
