Marpissa Paros

marpissa parosThe continental village of Marpissa located on the east side of the island of Paros on the road between Naousa and Piso Livadi. Marpissa is a typical Cycladic village surrounded by farming plains and small hills.

The village is dominated by the monastery of Agios Antonios and its 16th century AD church which stands on top of the hill Kefalos to the east of the village.
To reach the Monastery you need to take a winding road that begins from the 3 old windmills in the centre of the village.
When the road ends you can park your car and walk up the steps to the summit.
The walk during a hot summer day is not so easy but the views at the summit are breathtakingly beautiful. However, for those who can't climb to the top, the view from the end of the road is just as spectacular.
views to parosThe scenery is amazing with panoramic views to the east coast of Paros and the west coasts of Naxos.
A second beautiful monastery, The Monastery of Aghios Georgios can also be visited at the north-west side of the village .
In Marpissa there are accommodations, taverns and shops. If you decide to stay in Marpissa the beach of Molos and the beaches of Piso Livadi and Logaras are very close. Near to Marpissa is the village of Lefkes, where you can go following the old Byzantine path that connects the two villages and the village of Prodromos both worth visiting. One of the attractions of Prodromos is the entrance to the village through an arcade that connects the churches of Agios Nikolas and Agios Spyridon.
