Mykonos has a lot of surprises. One of them is the neighborhood of Alefkantra or Small Venice as they call it. The picture you will see here is unique. The famous small Venice of Aegean Sea with the houses built on the sea is a picture that you won't see anywhere else. It is located in the east part of the island. It starts from the beach of Alefkantra and stretches to the old neighborhood of Castle. The sea literally leaks the walls of the houses and the waves rise up on the wooden balconies. The houses have very vivid colours. The colourful balconies, wooden lofts, windows and doors give a different picture of Mykonos. That is the artists' favorite neighborhood. In its cafes you will meet all the celebrities that visit the island. It is the muse for many artists. Painters greek and foreign have captured this unique beauty.
