Paroikia is a beautiful town built in the local (Cycladic) style, located on the site of an ancient town.

Today, it is a port town and the island capital. Among the white cube-shaped houses of the village, you will see neoclassical and medieval ruins of buildings. In the summer, the alleys of the old traditional village become lively with visitors strolling along and shopping or enjoying their meals in tavernas and restaurants.
