Following on from our walk through Mykonos Town to see its highlights we hopped back on board our coach and set off for a place approximately in the centre of the island, the village of Ano Mera. Ano Mera is the most heavily-populated village on Mykonos and has a few interesting sights to see but the first thing we were there for was to grab some food in the Taverna Apostolis.
We sat outside but in the shade where we could get some breeze to help cool us down. Plenty of water, some wine, and some very reasonable food was then taken in before we had a bit of time to explore the village.
We had been told that we would be able to visit the adjacent Monastery of Panagia Tourliani, built in the 16th century and restored in the 18th, but a funeral service was being held at the time of our trip. While our tour guide said they probably wouldn’t mind if we entered in ones and twos for a look around so long as we were quiet it didn’t seem to be very respectful so we declined and I’m happy to say that everyone else in our group did as well. I made do with a few shots of the surroundings before we hit the coach for our final stop on our full day excursion.
