REVIVING ANCIENT SYMBOLISMS IN KALESMA MYKONOS
According to Greek mythology Mykonos materialised in the Aegean from the rocks that Zeus,
King of the Gods, threw into the sea during one of the outbursts he was infamous for. The island
was named after the son of Anius, King of the neighbouring islet, Delos. Besides its regal
heritage, however, Delos was further revered in the ancient world, as the birthplace of sibling
Gods Artemis and Apollo.
This fabled little piece of land among the waves is visible from Kalesma Mykonos’ contemporary
home, its splendid sunrises and sunsets painting the sky in amazing colours. Uniting the
mystiques of two sensational destinations, Mykonos and Delos, Kalesma now stands proud in
Mykonos’ Aleomandra region, named after the sacred Delian stables, which according to myth,
provided shelter for the horses of Apollo. Here resided these noble creatures, enjoying the warm
sun and island breezes, galloping beneath the golden sunlight.
