Milos island lies in the south west of the Cyclades group of islands.
The island probably took it's name from the fruit "Milo" (apple) or according to legend, from a young man called Milos.
This island is like a natural museum of 151 square kilometers, with fantastic beaches.
Milos is the fifth largest Cycladic island and together with Santorini, is situated on the volcanic Aegean arc.
While Santorini has forged ahead with tourism, Milos has relied on her mineral wealth, producing 25% of the natural output.
It is only in the last 10 years that tourism has taken off. There is much for the tourist to see: The ancient city, the Emerald cave, mine museum and the picuresque fishing village of Klima.
Milos has become a favorite tourist destination, hence this lovely signed watercolor of the village of Klima, Milos.
It measures approx. 12" wide x 9 1/2" high
