White beaches, watercolour houses and culinary treasures—these may be why most tourists come to the Cyclades, but these Greek islands are so much more, and the Cycladic group has more beauty and history than you can shake a souvlaki at. Grouped around the sacred island of Delos, the Cyclades are located in the Aegean Sea southeast of mainland Greece and are the heart and soul of ancient Greek history, geography and culture.
In part one of this two-part series we'll visit five of the 220 Cyclades that are representative of the 5000-year history, mythology, archaeology and culture of this unique part of the Mediterranean.
The most significant historical elements of the islands revolve around the Late Neolithic and Early Bronze Age Cycladic cultures with their very distinctive artistic and architectural themes that predate the more well-known Minoan culture of Crete to the south.
