The Cyclades (a Greek archipelago in the southern Aegean Sea, on the outskirts of the South Aegean) The archipelago comprises about 250 islands, islets and rocky islands, and only 24 islands are inhabited. Cyclades as they form a circle (in ancient Greek: κύκλος / kúklos) around the sacred island of Delos From 1833 to the Kallikratis reform of 2010, the Cyclades formed a nome.

The number of islands considered to be part of the Cyclades has varied over the course of history. According to Strabo, it was thought in antiquity that the group originally consisted of twelve islands, to which three had been added. Citing the geographer Artemidore, he enumerates fifteen islands, from which the islands of the south-east (Folegandros, Sikinos, Ios, Thera, Amorgos, Anaphi), then called Sporades, are absent.

The architecture of the Cyclades presents is characterized by the stripping and the rough geometric form of the houses. Appeared during the great invasions, she had a certain influence on the functionalist movement in architecture. Greece attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists to the central islands of the Aegean Sea. Every day, dozens of ferries connect the islands to each other and to the mainland.

Paros is an island of the Aegean Sea and a sword of Greece. It lies to the west of Naxos in the Cyclades archipelago of which it is the third largest island by its surface as well as main maritime crossroads. Parikiá is the largest city and the main port of the island. Its inhabitants are the Parians.

Santorini also called Thira or Thira (Θήρα / Thíra), is a Greek island located in the Aegean Sea. It is the largest and most populated island of a small volcanic archipelago with four other islands, sometimes called the Santorini archipelago. © Pictures of Emmanuel Buchot
