Milos Island Sights & Attractions

Due to its volcanic geology, Milos has a lot of caves along its coastline. These caves can be visited by boat from the port of the island.

This is one of the most significant monuments on Milos that date from the Roman times. This underground complex is formed by three interconnected catacombs.
