Coordinates: 37° 5′ 3″ N, 25° 8′ 48″ E

Paros (Πάρος), one of the Cyclades island group, lies to the west of Naxos, from which it is separated by a channel about 8 km wide. Historically, Paros was known for its fine white marble, which gave rise to the term “Parian” to describe marble or china of similar qualities. The capital, Parikia, situated on a bay on the north-west side of the island, occupies the site of the ancient capital Paros.

On the north side of the island is the bay of Naoussa (Naussa) or Agoussa, which provides a safe and spacious harbour.

Another important settlement of the island Paros is Lefkes. Lefkes is an inland mountain village 10 km away from Parikia. It is a picturesque village with narrow streets.
