AGERIA (Village) PAROS

The southwestern part of Paros, 12km from Parikia, is the site of the community of Ageria. In old times, this was a small settlement, built on the hill on which stands the old church of Saint George. The name Ageria, or Agairies, or Egairies, is a local one, derived from the rocky walls which separated the cultivated land from the uncultivated. The old, beautiful monastery of Agioi Theodori is the jewel of Ageria. It is built on its summit, and faces the Aegean sea. Ageria is the perfect place for visitors in search of a peaceful vacation, fine beaches and the possibility to go fishing. A number of taverns serve fresh fish

DRYOS (Village) PAROS

This is the greenest part of Paros. It has streams, lakes and a lovely, pristine beach. It will suit those who like walking and is perfect for family holidays.

North of it, one finds the monastery of Agios Georgios.

NAOUSSA (Village) PAROS

On the northern coast of Paros lies Naoussa, called the Pearl of the Aegean Sea, and one of the most picturesque ports of the Cyclades. There, foreign and Greek tourists enjoy traditional snacks in one of the many "ouzeris". The visitor will soon discover that this part of the Gulf of Paros was blessed by the gods. They endowed the region with the beautiful seashores of Kolimbithres, Agios Giannis, Lageri, Santa Maria and Agious Anargirous. It is small wonder that Naoussa hosts the majority of all the cultural and traditional happenings of the island, such as the Wine- and Fish-festivals. This jewel of the Aegean Sea, under the tender warmth of the sun, offers its visitors both history and a hospitable environment.

PAROS (Small town) KYKLADES

The old town of PAROS, also called "The most splendid city of Paros" was located on the site of today's Parikia or Parkia, as it is presently called by the inhabitants. It is the island's capital. Its port welcomes both passenger- and merchant-ships. It is also the seat of all public services, as well as of the communal Administration. It is the centre of economic and touristic activities.

The most famous monument of Parikia is the church of Ekatontapiliani.
