Paraportiani Church, Mykonos

Mykonos (Greece) - June 2008

 

14 Seconds, f/6.3, 18 mm.

I took this photo some time after sunset (8:35 pm).

The colours in the sky were just amazing...

 

Paraportianí Church (Παναγία η Παραπορτιανή) is one of the most famous architectural structures in Greece. Its name means secondary gate, because it was built on the site of one of the gates of the Medieval stone walls. Some parts of this beautiful church date from 1425 and the rest was built during the 16th and 17th centuries.
