One of a kind!

The church is really one of a kind! It is so like a typical Myconian church! Highly recommended to visit

Very nice, most photographed church in the Greek Islands they say. Got a nice shot of the stark white church with a cruise ship in the background against the brilliant blue Aegean Sea.

Easy to find when you walk along the sea front of Mykonos Town. The area prides itself with many restaurants and bars.

Nice to see if you walk by but I wouldn't make it a point. Not much to see. Look at the picture and you've seen it.

A gem in abandon, neglected, but very nice architecture, need a new painting, but has to wait, in Greece never a little church jewel sink into oblivion.

This church is the most amazing treasure you could see on Mykonos. I don't think its possible to enter anymore. Just sit there nearby and any time of the day you can understand how brilliant the people were who constructed this church. there is nothing like being there at sunset and under the Full moon.

Charming little church with beautiful views, especially at sunset. You can only visit inside a certain hours.

It's such a unique structure of an old building. A must see if nearby. Have it's own character. Went here twice!

A beautiful, very photogenic building, but lacking in information and not open to the public, which is a shame . Some of the smaller churches are welcoming and offer a fascinating glimpse into Greek religious life.
