Mykonos wasn’t always the glamorous island it is now.

Are you curious about its origins? Keep reading!

The first inhabitants of Mykonos were the Carians, but the Ionians from Athens seem to have settled right after, in 11 century B.C. Mykonos used to be a poor island with just two towns, but, thanks to its location, it was an important supplies spot. During that time, people in Mykonos used to worship ancient Greek gods, mainly Demetra, Poseidon, Apollo, Zeus, DIonysus and Hercules.

As years went by Mykonos was conquered by Romans and then became a part of the Byzantine empire, until it was eventually conquered by the Venetians. During its Venetian occupation, the island was destroyed and conquered by the Ottomans.

Despite the fact that it had been occupied many times, the population of Mykonos increased during the following years. The island became an important replenishment center and its inhabitants became very good sailors. As a result, Mykonians played an important role in Greek revolution of 1821, supporting it with boats and sailors.
