The area's storied past is told through its monuments and historic sites, while the museums provide some cultural flavor. Stroll the halls at Archaeological Museum, Venetian Museum, or Folk Museum Collection. For cultural attractions, head to Eggares Olive Press Museum, Museum of Natural History, and Paros Archaeological Museum. Naxos Kastro, Panagia Myrtidiotissa Church, and Moni Chrysostomou are monuments worth a look. Some landmarks that can't be missed include Temple of Apollo, Kouros Statue, and Bazeos Tower.
