Cycladic white houses in card postal in clear blue skies
Have you ever admired the uniformity of the traditional buildings in the Cycladic islands in pictures and postal cards?
The blue and white seem the ultimate combination, reminding everybody of the clear blue skies and the white clouds, the cobalt sea of the Aegean and the white gentle waves. Once you set your foot on Cycladic islands, the Cycladic architecture will steal your heart away and make you crave for another picture of the landscapes with the traditional caved houses overlooking the caldera.
The Cyclades are a complex of islands emerging from the deep blue Aegean sea, forming a circle around the sacred island of Delos. They are considered to be the pearl of the Greek islands, featuring idyllic landscapes that allure visitors from all over the world.
There is nothing more refreshing than walking up and down the cobbled pathways of the picturesque villages, passing through the neighborhoods with the blossomed flower pots and the hospitable locals, the white-brushed walls and the blue shutters and doors.

According to the surroundings and the awe-inspiring scenery, the architecture of the buildings has been shaped in a way that allows no actual intervention to the absolute beauty of the island.
Uniformly designed and superbly located in the most inspiring places of the island, the buildings are indeed a sight for sore eyes.
Cycladic islands seem to be designed by the hand of the same artist, sitting in harmony with their natural site reputation that goes well beyond the borders of Greece. They are characterized by a scenery variety of steep mountains, vineyards, churches, whitewashed cubed houses and picturesque white painted villages on top of impressively high cliffs.
Each and every one of them has its own unique characteristics, determined by its history, topography, and geology but they all seem to be bound together by their architecture. Cycladic architecture is famous for its uniqueness and charm, providing the islands with minimal aesthetics but with a daring style.
