The village Marpissa in Paros

Marpissa is located high on the hills of Paros. It is a beautiful village, with the Sculpture Museum of Perantinos, its mills and its coastal settlement, Piso Livadi, with fish taverns and bars.

Marpissa is also one of the most beautiful villages of Paros. It is located at the top of a small hill, at the center of which there is the dominating church of Metamorphosis (the Transfiguration of Jesus), of byzantine style. Close by, there is the Museum of Perantinos and a bit further down, the monument of Stellas.

At the small square of the village, there are the four characteristic windmills of Paros and here is also the starting point of a path that leads to the monastery of Agios Antonios (St. Anthony). The view from the summit of Kefalos, where the monastery is located, is wonderful. The Aegean Sea lies at your feet.

The village's houses (dating back to the 16th and 17th century) and its paved alleys are beautiful. It is located 17 kilometers to the east of Parikia, 40 meters from sea level. Marpissa's former name was Tsipidos. It is built amphitheatrically, with taverns and cafés and at the village's square there is the Folklore Museum with interesting exhibits.

If you happen to be at the village on Good Friday you will be impressed by the representation of the Passion of Christ, while on Easter Sunday there is a traditional Greek feast.

If planning a holiday in August, do consider the Marpissa Routes three-day festival, taking place in the last days of August, offering thematic forays and highlights of special interest across the settlement. Emphasis is placed on architecture, folklore, music, visual arts and the environment. Unmissable!
