Gialos
Gialos

It's the first thing you will see as you pass the "gates" of Chora and is considered as the ideal spot for early birds. Gialos unfolds before your eyes as you walk from the old car park towards the main entrance of Chora. The small stretch of sand on your right hand side is Agia Anna, while as you enter to the town's centre you will see the Manto Mavrogenous Square, which is dominated by the statue of the heroine of the revolution of 1821.

In the past, Gialos was the heart of the island, but now all that’s left to remind us of the old days is Paga, the flea market that is set up here every morning. Therefore, Gialos is considered by many as a place for the early morning types. The American painter Carolina, who stands in front of Kazarma restaurant to present her daily works, depicting Mykonos of another era, is something of a trademark figure. Along the scenic route of Gialos, you will see beautiful cafe-bars, restaurants, shops and expensive jewellers, while it’s a very good option for you to enjoy your breakfast.
