Located in the Cyclades, and surrounded by the bluish-green water of the Aegean Sea, is Mykonos the island of winds.
The island and its environs were once believed to be the bodies of gods shot down in battle by Hercules.
Long before Greece was Greece and the legends, this set of paradise islands harbored countless cultures for millennia. With forty square kilometers and a population of only ten thousand inhabitants, Mykonos has managed to position itself as one of the most coveted vacation destinations thanks to its magnificent architecture, its welcoming venues and especially its people.
With names like Paradise or Superparadise, its beaches have captured the imagination and hearts of celebrities and artists. Famous for its fun nightlife and relaxing daytime life, Mykonos has become one of the jet-set's top destinations.
This volume narrates through explanatory texts and illustrations the culture and society that Mykonos has defined during the last century, from its days when great minds such as Le Corbusier or Antonis Benakis used the island as refuge and inspiration, up to the moment that becomes a sanctuary for the gay community.
More than 200 illustrations in a Mykonos of contrasts, from its famous festivals to its mythological ruins.
