Parikia is the capital of Paros Greece and has about 3,000 inhabitants. This little town is the commercial and cultural centre of Paros as well as the main harbour of the island. Parikia is built amphitheatrically around the port and has a typical Cycladic architecture, with whitewashed cubic and flat roofed houses with spare architectural lines and coloured wooden doors, windows and balconies. On the entrance of the port, a superb whitewashed windmill welcomes the visitors and constitutes the trademark of Paros.
