It is perched on the top of large rock, overlooking the gulf of Milos. No cars can enter the village because of the narrow spaces between walls and buildings.
Plaka is the present capital of Milos, and was founded in 1800. The village spreads on the sides of the hill of the area and has a traditional Cycladic architecture, with whitewashed houses, coloured windows and doors, balconies full of flowers and greenery and narrow white streets.
It is a beautiful old settlement built on the slopes of a high volcanic hill. It has labyrinth-like streets with many small souvenir shops with a lovely square with small taverns.
Milos or Melos is a volcanic Greek island in the Aegean Sea, just north of the Sea of Crete. Milos is the southwesternmost island in the Cyclades group. The Venus de Milo and the Asclepius of Milos were both found on the island, as were a Poseidon and an archaic Apollo now in Athens.
