Photographer's Note

My first panorama (two different photos stiched together in Photoshop) in TE and it's from one of my favourite greek islands, Milos (for me one of the top 3). From the castle above the island's capital, Plaka you can see one of the finest Aegean sunsets.

Some of the reasons why you should visit Milos:
-It's an open "museum" dedicated to mother Earth. Nature uses here all the colour pallete to paint the ground, the rocks, the beaches and the seawater.
-Has more than 70 beautiful beaches, among them the world famous "Sarakiniko", that with its white rocks reminds of a moon landscape. Be careful with the sun there, ti burns twice because it's reflected to the white rocks.
-A perfectly well preserved ancient Theatre and the place where the famous statue of "Afrodite of Milos" was found.
-Some of the world's largest catacombs , second only to the ones in Rome
-A great natural "pool" in Papafrangos Cave
-One of the finest open bars in Greece, called "8 Beauforts" in the beautiful village of Pollonia.
-Exquisite Mediterranean Cuisine. You have to taste "pitarakia".
-A lot of beautiful tiny islands in very short distance
-Some of Greece's most interesting tradicional seaside villages with very small houses (no more than 25-20 m2) right beside the waves, called "syrmata". The apotheosis of minimalism.
