As one of the finest examples of a Greek Orthodox Church, the Ekatondapiliani is a Byzantine church that was built by Ignatius with a 6th century design. As one of the more interesting attractions in Paros, the church also features a bright chapel that is shaped like an imperfect cross, which is a common design among Byzantine churches.
There are many people who consider the Ekatondapiliani as one of the attractions in Paros that should not be missed. This is because its quietude offers a great contrast to the busy port nearby, which you will pass on your way to the church. The chapel itself, with its gold-plated icons, may not have such a good light source but what illumination it gets from the icons makes up for it. This makes the chapel a very cool place to visit if you want some peace and quiet. At the right side of the church's courtyard is a small museum that displays icons from the church.
