The picturesque settlement Prodromos in Paros
Explore the village Prodromos with the arches
It is a picturesque and beautiful settlement in Paros, located on a hill. The villages Prodromos and Marmara constitute the community of Archilochus. The initial name of the village was Dragoulas but in 1953 it took its current name from the church of St. John the Prodrome that was built at the time. Here, at the church of St. John the Prodrome, is held one of the most important feasts of Paros on the 23th of June.
Its houses are built really close to each other; at the entrances there are arches, while the village's entrance is an arch with a vaulted roof and a belfry. This arch joins together the churches of St. Nicolas and St. Spyridon and at the same time it prevents the entrance of vehicles into the city.
The yards are tidy, with many flowers and walking through the alleys you will find traditional cafés, here and there, where you can try delicious dishes.
In Prodromos, except from the central asphalted road, you can also take the byzantine path, one of the most famous paths of Paros, which connects Lefkes with Prodromos. The thousand-year-old path, which is paved with marble plates, leads within one and a half hour through olive plantations and vineyards to this picturesque village. From Prodromos you can easily go to the beaches of Molos, Kalogeros and Tsoukalia.
