Mykonos’ most famous church is the Panagia Paraportiani, whose name translates to “Our Lady of the Side Gate”. It’s actually not a single church, but a group of five smaller churches that were amalgamated into one. Four of the churches were used to form the base for the fifth church, which when placed on top, formed a central domed roof. Construction first begun in 1475 and wasn’t finished until the 17th century.
