Churches in Ios island

A photographic tour of the cycladic aesthetic

By mycountry In Photography, Travel

It’s said that the churches in Ios are 365 as the days of the year. To be honest I didn’t count them, I didn’t visit all of them neither the one tenth. I just wondered around Chora the “town” of Ios, these whitewashed churches are found in every corner of the narrow hidden streets. From top to bottom Ios is filled with white chapels scattered on hilltops and shores, in villages and valleys. The Cycladic chapels through their architecture, clad in white, with their small size proclaim the grandeur of faith which doesn’t need size to assert itself.
