A brief history about Paros

Paros has been inhabited since the 4th millennium BC and has experienced a variety of contrasting periods, from pinnacles of great economic and artistic superiority to low points of violence and obscurity. Paros evolved historically through three great civilizations, the Cycladic, the Minoan and the Mycenaean. Throughout antiquity Paros was an important commercial and military center, conquered by many armies, it became part of the Roman Empire, the Byzantine Empire and in 1537, the Ottoman Turks took over Paros and ruled until the Greek War of Independence (1821–1829). After Independence, the island of Paros, as well the entire Cyclades group , became part of the modern Greek State. During ancient times, Paros was renowned for its high-quality semi-transparent white marble, used in many celebrated masterpieces such as the Temple of Apollo and the Venus of Milos.
