Mykonos City, also called Chora, is the main settlement on the island of Mykonos, Greece. In classical antiquity it was a polis located in the Tavern Point region of the Silver Islands, famous for its blue granite and abundant wells.

Among its landmarks, Mykonos boasted a temple of Artemis and an altar dedicated to the same goddess.

During the Peloponnesian War the misthios Kassandra came to the town and explored it.[1]

Trivia

  • Chora (χώρα) is a Greek word which simply means 'town'. It is often used as the name of the main town on an island, following the common practice in Greece when the name of the island itself is the same as the name of the principal town.
