General history/mythology

The island’s history is illustrious. From antiquity, Paros has always been a wealthy island thanks at large to its natural resources; particularly it’s Parian Marble, a near translucent white stone that’s the originator of many ancient works of art, such as the Venus de Milo. Paros was a player during the Persian Wars, the Byzantine Empire and even the Crusades, before making its mark during the Greek Independence war.
