The Cyclades is a group of Greek islands, southeast of the mainland in the Aegean Sea. It centers on uninhabited Delos, considered the birthplace of Apollo, and home to some of Greece’s most important archaeological ruins. Many of the islands are popular holiday destinations, known for their beaches, ancient sites, rugged landscapes and traditional blue-and-white stucco towns overlooking the sea.
The name "Cyclades" refers to the islands forming a circle (in English : "circular islands") around the sacred island of Delos.
According to the Greek mythology, Poseidon, God of the sea, furious at the Cyclades nymphs turned them into islands.
