Marmara 


Marmara

Going downhill from Prodromos directing east we reach Marmara, a small agricultural village with old mansions, which took its name by the large quantity of marbles that exist in the area. There are many beautiful churches inside and outside of the village, and each one has its own special history. The most imposing church is the metropolitan church of the Assumption of the Virgin, inside the village, whereas in the entrance of the village stands the pure white temple of Taxiarchis (17th century). Other churches are those of Agios Savvas and Pera Panagia that celebrates on the 8th of September. Towards the sea lies the plain of Marmara, an endless land full of small gardens, that its one has a natural fencing made of stubbles and immortals (a plant that grows in Cyclades) so as to protect itself from the winds and numerous wells. Following the road from Marmara heading east, we reach the coastal village of Molos. At the foot of Mount Antikefalos, NE of Marmara, there were found ancient ceramic vases. It is presumed that in this area, under the alluviums it is buried the ancient city of Iria. From Marmara we have access to the beaches in the east side of Paros: Kalogeros, Tsoukalia and Glifades.
