In the 13th century, the Venetians established their presence by building the Castle of Milos, on the hill, which is called Prophet Elias and is about 280 meters high. The Castle survived but was vandalized from soldiers and pirates during the decades. In 1738 Milos flustered from a powerful earthquake and in 1750 the eruption of the volcano made the situation even worse. By the end of the 18th century these terrible events forced the inhabitants to abandon the main town of Milos and the surviving population moved into the Venetian castle. The castle was abandoned after the Greek revolution of 1821. During World War II, Germans used it as a war base. The bombards during WWII ruined the nearby church of Virgin Mary. A visit to the castle in the late evening offers visitors the opportunity to admire an enchanting sunset.
The beach of Lagada lies right next to Adamas and in fact is the natural extension of the harbor. After arriving in Adamas walk to your right and the road will lead you to Lagada, a beautiful beach with trees, well organized and usually not crowded.
Resembling a magical moonscape this bone white rocky beach stands proud against the sapphire waters of the sea. It is considered one of the best beaches on the island of Milos as well as one of the most photographed beaches in the entire Aegean Sea.
