Market Street, the lively heart of Parikia
We shall now reach one of the most popular and picturesque places in Parikia, which is like a lively islet in the middle of Market Street.

Passing under a very low arch, you can follow Rema Floga's bed towards one of the large public car parks.
The port of Parikia
Paros welcomes you with its famous windmill. On the left, the stroll follows the seaside to the marina and the beach of Livadia. On the right, it takes you to another beach and other windmills.
The fishing port and the marina
All the marina's jetties offer stunning panoramic views of the village and Parikia Bay.
Agios Fokas, the beautiful church that welcomes you in the bay of Parikia
From the ferry, the blue dome of the church of Agios Fokas is the first thing you see as you round the eponymous cape to enter the bay of Parikia. A beautiful church, small beaches, an extraordinary panoramic view of the capital of Paros and absolute tranquillity (no bars or taverns in the immediate vicinity).
