“The Cave of Antiparos is among the most beautifuland most significant in the world; this because, in addition to being an enchanting natural site worth seeing, it is inextricably linked to the history of the area and generates great archaeological interest, owing to the findings from the Stone Age discovered in its interior. The engraved inscriptions that ‘adorn’ it are also an inexhaustible source of stories, legends and information concerning famous—and more anonymous—visitors, like a kind of guest book, whose first page was written hundreds of year before the birth of Christ. Stalactites and stalagmites, which change form according to the inspiration and imagination of the individual visitor, adorn the ‘Katafygi’ [shelter], as locals used to call the Cave. It is located some 171 metres above sea level, is precipitous, and its interior temperature in wintertime is at about 15 degrees Celsius. It has an area of approximately 5,600 square metres. Its maximum depth reaches some 85 metres and the descent takes place easily and securely, by way of a cement staircase made up of 411 steps. The exceptional visibility makes possible the observation of details created by ‘Nature, the artist’, and also permits the search for human presence from the times of the Parian poet Archilochus (c. 680 - c. 645 BC) up to the 20th century. The Cave is open for visits from April through October, its opening hours from 10:00-15:00 In winter months visits may be made upon arrangement with the Municipality of Antiparos. The admission ticket costs 5.00 euros. There is a 50% discount for children and those over 65 (2.50 euros).”

“It is one of the most important preserved Early Christian monuments on the Greek territory, and even the largest in size. According to tradition, the original building of this church was the work of the Byzantine Emperor and Saint Constantine to fulfill the wish of his mother, St. Helen. At this point it is stated that during the voyage of King Helen to the Holy Land, due to a great sea disturbance, the ship that was forced to flee to Paros. There, praying for St. Helen to the Virgin Mary, patron of Constantinople, she completed her journey to build a magnificent church dedicated to the Assumption. This tomb was built by Constantine's son Constantine, building a three-aisled basilica around the 4th century. Eventually, with the various modifications and additions, the building of Ekatontapyliani now became a blended architecture with early Christian, Byzantine and even post-Byzantine architectural elements, which were occasionally added to form an ideal study. Considering that the early Christians chose sites of ancient temples with the building materials of which they built their own temples, the Ekatontapyliani complex also includes marble parts from antiquity, thus highlighting a continuity from that time to the present day.”
