MYKONOS

Exploring Ano Mera

  • Ano Mera erkunden

There are basically only two settlements on the island of Mykonos, the town of the same name, and the idyllic village of Ano Mera. The village is inland and largely untouched by tourism, so you can relax there in perfect peace and visit the 16th century Monastery of Panagia Tourliani. In fact, it’s worth a visit just for the bell tower and the marble fountain at the center of it.

At the bottom, the turquoise-colored river winds its way through the landscape, constantly offering impressive views of the fairy-tale landscape.
