Project Description

Plaka

Plaka

Plaka is the current capital of the island. Its name is due to the flat ground on which the houses of its first inhabitants were built, when the Castle could no longer house the entire population.
Built at an altitude of 220 meters above sea level, with island color and Cycladic architecture, with picturesque cobbled alleys originally built for protection from pirates, with small traditional shops, restaurants and cafes and with magnificent views of the bay of Milos, Plaka composes a scene of infinite beauty that you must visit and explore. (Car traffic is prohibited.)
At the top of the hill of Plaka is the imposing Venetian “Castle” of the 13th century from which you can enjoy idyllic sunsets with wonderful colors and panoramic views of the bay of the island, as well as neighboring Cycladic islands.
