This church with its chapels is one of the major attractions on the island of Paros. The church dates back to the 4th Century, and its name suggests that it has 99 door while the hundredth is hidden till Constantinople becomes Greek Orthodox again. The church featured one of the earliest and most preserved baptistery in Christendom. Right next to the church, located the Byzantine Museum (2euros. Prices summer 2022) Not a huge museum but for those who are interested it shows some religious artifacts from ancient Christian world. From a small souvenirs shop you can buy some religious replicas for reasonable prices.
So cool to see a part of history from a cultural perspective. Nice and quick and right off the port so you can visit while you are waiting for your rental car to arrive.
