The history of Milos, Greece can be dated back thousands of years and is rich and varied. Many new visitors to the island may not realize that this is where the Venus of Milos was discovered in 1820 buried on land where the village of Tripiti now stands.

It now has a permanent home at the Louvre Museum in Paris.
