Sifnos

One of the most authentic Cycladic island wait for you to discover it.

Sifnos is a Cycladic island that has not been touched by time. It has been populated from three thousand BC. From antiquity to now, the island has been known for its culture, its traditions, its cuisine (the birth place of Nikolao Tselemente and other well-known master chefs), its architecture (white houses, cobbled streets and yards, paths and stone walls.

More specifically, Sifnos was one of the richest parts of the ancient world thanks to the gold mines (the first gold coins were cut here), the silver mines (the second oldest silver mine in the world is found here) and the development of pottery.

You can go back in time by visiting the ancient acropolis such as the one at Kastro, the former capital of Sifno, at the hill of St Andrews, the hill of St Nikita, the 77 rounded citadels dotted throughout the island that date back to 6th century BC, built by the residents as a defence against pirates, the various museums such as the Archaeological Museum of Sifno at Kastro, the Archaeological site of St Andrew and the Folklore Museum at the central square (Hero Square) at the capital, Apollonia. There, at the famous ‘Steno’ (‘Narrow’), where all the roads lead after the setting of the sun, you will find the best known bars of the island.

You can discover all the above through the various activities that we can recommend or by just walking along the more than 200 kilometres of pathways (some are cobbled paths, others are lined with marble and others are dirt tracks) that can be found on the island with a history that goes back to three thousand years BC.
