     The capital of the island of Mykonos is Mykonos town. Mykonos town was a Venetian outpost during the 12th through 18th centuries. It was here the Venetians had warehouses to store goods that were going to and from the east. Mykonos town was the one settlement they chose to protect on the island. (Though I did not see the Kastro/Kastelli that would have been built to protect the town) Hence, a very rugged section of the town is called little Venice. The rest of the town is a labyrinth of streets with white washed hoses and colorful windows. There are tons of churches in the labyrinth; the most impressive church is really four churches built in one heavily protected building right on the coast. Mykonos town is a beautiful town to wander through, though you do have to put up with the hoards of the tourists packing the streets. Near little Venice is windmill hill where the famous Mykonos windmills stand. Only one of them still works.
