Agios Georgios Spiliotis in Mykonos

It is said that there are over 500 churches and chapels in Mykonos. I think that figure is grossly exaggerated, they are many, but not as many as 500.

 

Red churches in Mykonos.

Many churches have red ceilings. Like this one in Agios Ioannis.

 

 

Almost all church roofs are red, something very rare in the Cyclades, where blue is the most common colour. Unfortunately, I do not know why they chose red colour in Mykonos.

I think that the most interesting church outside Mykonos Town is the little church Agios Georgios above Tourlos (just before the new port). It is built in a hollow boulder and it looks like a house from a book of fairy tails.

 

The small church of Agios Georgios Spiliotis. Mykonos.

The small church of Agios Georgios Spiliotis, located near Tourlos and Agios Stefanos.


The church is surrounded by a large number of boulders, and Agios Georgios is thus built in and around the largest of the boulders. The landscape resembles more of the planet Mars than of Greece. I have only seen similar boulders on the islands of Tinos and Ikaria.

Inside the church there is room for four to five people if you crowd together. Light a candle and think of your family and friends in this wonderfully strange church.
