One of Mykonos’ most iconic structures is the Armenistis Lighthouse. Situated on a hill that was formerly known as Vourdoulakas, which is Greek for vampire. It is believed that the name originated in an effort to scare children away from the treacherous cliffs. However, the Lighthouse, now abandoned but still operational, is a popular gathering place for island visitors and a haven for young couples due to its romantic appeal. Its advantageous location provides stunning views, breathtaking sunsets, and a tranquil setting for reflection and relaxation. However, Armenistis was initially designed to prevent maritime mishaps. A shipwreck that occurred in the spring of 1877 provided the catalyst.
