Archeological sites - Mykonos

Mykonos provides many archaeological sites, the main one being the archaeological site of Ftelia, where a settlement of the neoteric Neolithic Age has been found. At various spots on the island survive towers, both square and circular. Square towers have been found on the west of the island at Vouni of Sklavounos and at the spot of Fanari on the south. At Lino on the southeast of Chora there are remains of a settlement with a tower built on top of the cliffs with diameter of 10-11 m and survives at a height of four levels. Worth visiting is Mavrospilia where many tools and objects of the Neolithic Age were found.

Finally, at the position of Aggelika a minoan dome-shaped grave was found end of 15th century B.C.
The sacred island of Apollo which is situated near Mykonos is Delos, which was first inhabited in the third millennium B.C. and at the beginning of the 10 century B.C. was turned into a center for worship. The whole island is an open museum.
