Paros The ancient cemetery

Near the port, almost below the coastal road, a great cemetery came to light in 1983 which dated from the late 8th century BC to the 3rd century AD. It includes tombs of different styles and different eras. The most important finding is a polyandrion (mass grave), unique in the Aegean which dates back to the late Geometrical period (8th century BC). In front of the polyandrion there is a huge headstone. Today the site operates as an archaeological park. At the showroom next to the cemetery you will see interesting findings and photos from the excavations.
