Description

The lighthouse or “Fanari” as locally known which translates to “Lantern” from Greek is standing like a sentinel over the Armenistis area and is a testimony to Mykonos’ maritime history. To reach the lighthouse we take the road from Agios Stefanos which offers the most spectacular views on the island just 6.5 km from Mykonos town. It was manufactured in 1891. The altitude of tower is 19 meters and the height of focal plane is 184 meters. This place gives you a better view of the new port area of Mykonos and the beautiful scenery around it is breath taking. It makes the neighboring island of Tinos to look as if it is right next to you due to its strategic position. Visiting it gives you a good sense of the islands’ fascinating history combined with beauty. After your visit to Armenistis Lighthouse, we will start from the port of Mykonos, to enjoy the tour around the island from a different point of view, full of traditional and authentic images and experiences. Our first stop will be at a very well known site which all the island’s visitors must see, in order to capture a panoramic Mykonos Town photo shooting. Following the picture taking we will visit the picturesque small port of St. Ioannis, an area which was named after a small church dedicated to Saint Ioannis and one of great historical significance. We will visit the church, along with the Saint’s cell where the annual fair in his name is also being held. The small port in front of us is the starting point of the local fishing boats which are protected here from the island’s strong north winds. Right afterwards we will depart towards the Mykonos’ airport, where we will have a panoramic view of the airport’s runway and perhaps we are lucky enough to catch a plane taking off or landing. Leaving the airport behind us, we will be headed towards Ano Mera Village and pass through one entirely different scenery, one of the island’s most typical agricultural and stock raising areas, where we will observe small local cultivated fields and even some domestic animals in local family owned farms. We will head towards the Ano Mera village’s colorful square, where one of the island’s two monasteries is located (“Panagia Tourliani”) and we will be guided through its chambers. After capturing all these images of Mykonian countryside and its lifestyle, we will reach the farm of the Mykonian Spiti, where we will be guided by our escort and always under the directions of the farm’s superintendent. Whoever wishes may also use the farm’s tools and get involved with the farming work and tasks in co-operation with the superintendent. Take this opportunity to get closer to the domestic animals and the farm’s traditional organic cultivation. There is a Light Snack option for anyone who is interested to taste the local products from the traditional farm. As we continue our tour, we will be passing by some of the most distant beaches of Mykonos, named “Kalo Livadi”, “Kalafati” and also see “Agia Anna”.
