The Sparkling Aegean-Day 12- Milos

The island of Milos in the Cyclades has a distinctive landscape because it was formed from the caldera of a volcano, like Santorini. 

Milos Island is famous for its gorgeous coastline with beaches of yellow, white, red, or black pebbles, and the water is prized for its deep-blue colour and crystal-clear quality. 

The island’s main town, Pláka has an impressive Venetian fortress on top of the hill and the notable Church of the Panayía Thalassítras. 

The archeological museum in Pláka displays a copy of the Venus de Milo (the original is displayed at the Louvre Museum in Paris) as well as other finds from various periods.
