Plaka is the capital city of the Milos island. Unlike many capital cities, you won’t find a car, heavy traffic noises or even traffic lights. In addition, all the local houses built closely together, you’ll be able to walk around and take in the beautiful views.
Just like all other Greek islands, Plaka was built with a maze of alleys to confuse pirates. This beautiful village has charming cobbled stone alley and picturesque streets waiting for you to stroll down. Moreover, Planka has the ability to take you back 100 years with its admiring the Cycladic architecture.
The museum is a 200-year-old house located on a hill in Plaka located at the courtyard of the Panagia Korfiatissa church. The museum focuses on the history of the island from the 17th century and was built in 1967.
There are many artefacts, books, literature, and furniture from the 17th century within the museum. The museum really does showcase the history of the inhabitants of the island from this period.
When you first step foot onto Sarakiniko beach you’ll really feel like your on another planet. One minute you’ll be walking across beautiful cliffs the next you’ll be diving off them into the clear blue waters below.
The beach is located in between a number of cliffs making it a really unique experience and one of my favourite beaches.
Ancient Theatre of Milos
When you decide to visit Milos be sure to visit the ancient roman theatre. The theatre has been well preserved and really is a great aetiological part of the islands history.
During the era of the Empire of Greece Milos played the part it used to serve as the centre of music and art.
The theatre of Milos used to host a number of concerts during this era. This was just so beautiful with the magical backdrop of the clear blue Aegean sea.
Catacombs of Milos
Alongside the theatre, the island of Milos has number of catacombs. These catacombs are a network of tunnels and cemeteries. Back in the day, these catacombs were burial sites for famous greeks.
These Catacombes are one on the 3 most famous out of the 74 discovered around the world. They are really captivating the ways they show the ancient history of the tunnels. In addition, these catacombs are amongst the ones found in Rome and the holy land and are said to be older than the ones in Rome.
Tip on where to stay: When I Visited Milos I stayed at Eiriana Luxury suites. This is definitely a great charming place to stay. There’s a luxury pool for all the guest to enjoy and sunbath around on the comfortable loungers. If you book a suite you’ll have your own hot tub to enjoy the view. The rooms are a good size with a queen-size bed lounge area and bath. Furthermore, you’ll also be greeted with breakfast on your balcony with your very own breakfast which includes locally sourced yoghurt, honey, bread, eggs, pastries, tea or coffee and orange juice. It really is luxury at its best.
