A hint of history


This destination wasn’t always the glamorous island it is now.
The first inhabitants of the island were the Carians, but the Ionians from Athens seem to have settled right after, in 11 century B.C. it used to be a poor island with just two towns, but, thanks to its location, it was an important supplies spot. During that time, locals used to worship the ancient Greek gods, mainly Demetra, Poseidon, Apollo, Zeus, Dionysus, and Hercules.
As the years went by, it was conquered by the Romans and then became a part of the Byzantine Empire, until it was eventually conquered by the Venetians. During the Venetian occupation, the island was destroyed and conquered by the Ottomans.
Even though it had been occupied many times, its population increased during the following years. The island became an important replenishment center and its inhabitants became very good sailors. As a result, Mykonos played an important role in the Greek revolution of 1821, supporting it with boats and sailors.
