In the center of the present-day town, in the area known as “Tria Pigadia”, are the three wells which were the main water supply for Mykonos Chora from the middle of the 18th cent. until 1956. Unlike most modern wells which are over 30 metres deep, the Tria Pigadia are only 5–6 metres deep as they were dug into sand where water was more easily accessible.
