According to the legend, its name comes from a local hero, who was a descendant of Apollon. In mythology, Hercules fought against the giants, and when he killed them, he threw their body into the sea. Under the water they turned into huge rocks, that’s how the island of Mykonos emerged. Its first residents were the Caresis. The ancient island was a cultural center. Since the residents were skilled sailors they helped a lot in the war for independence. They offered 22 boats and 500 people to fight against the Turkish.For most families, the main income came from the textile industry. The textile from Mykonos was very good quality, thus, locals could engage in international trade as well. The tourism flourished in the early 1960s when the island became a favoured shelter for artists. Later it gave a home to hippies. Nowadays Mykonos is one of Greece’s most popular tourist destinations. Different classical ruins, ancient sites, and other findings represent the island’s rich history.
