Located in the Cyclades and surrounded by the most exquisite blue-green water of the Aegean sits whitewashed, windmill-strewn Mykonos, the island of winds. This ancient island and those surrounding it, mythologised as the bodies of gods felled by Hercules in the time of antiquity, are older than legend and have played host to countless cultures for more than millennia. At forty-square-miles and boasting a population of only ten thousand, the ‘Ibiza of Greece’ has become prized for gorgeous architecture, welcoming and open-minded locals, and fantastic beaches. With such names as ‘Paradise’ and ‘Super Paradise’, the sands of these shores have captured the imaginations and hearts of industry titans, artists, and partygoers alike from all around the globe.
This book chronicles the culture and society that has defined Mykonos over the past century, all while indulging the reader with the ruins and myths hidden there.
