Sitting in the heart of Mykonos about 4 miles east of Chora is the island's only other real town. But because it lacks the sea view, Ano Mera isn't as crowded as other parts of Mykonos; and many say you should only visit if you're passionate about religious history (the town is home to the island's two monasteries). The 18th century Monastery of Panagia Tourliani — located southeast of town — is renowned for its intricate marble carvings and massive Italian baroque altar screen. Head half a mile farther southeast past Panagia Tourliani and you'll find what's left of the 12th century Monastery of Paleokastro, which is now one of the most verdant spots on the island.
