Mykonos Town: The town of Mykonos, (also known as Chora), is the island’s port and capital. Built amphitheatrically, it is situated on the west side of the island. This typical Cycladic settlement, consists of cubic-shaped white houses and narrow streets which form an impressive labyrinth. Perpendicular to the harbor the visitor can find the main street, called Matoyanni, which is the town’s commercial core full of shops, cafeterias and bars. Little Venice, is a picturesque neighborhood at the southwest end of the port. The area owes its name to the fact that many of the wealthy early captains built their houses directly on the sea. Another of the island’s famous landmarks, also to be found here, is that of Mykonos’ windmills standing on a hill overlooking the town. In the past, all windmills, 16 in total, were in operation. If you come to the town of Mykonos you will find all kinds of facilities, such as hotels, restaurants, cafeterias, souvenir shops and fine jewelleries.
