Kamares in Sifnos

Sifnos enjoyed great prosperity in Classical times, as can be seen from its Treasury dedicated to Apollo at Delphi.

An attractive town the port of Kamares, a modern town with pottery workshops, brings us to the island's capital, Apolonia. Standing on three hillsides, with its typical Cycladic architecture, it is breathtakingly beautiful. Apolonia has an interesting Folklore Museum, while the churches of the greatest interest are those of Our Lady "Ouranofora" and St. Sozon.

The architecture of Apolonia is an old assemblage in which walls, terraces, courtyards and alleyways form large cubes in a continuous complex, in total harmony with the natural environment.

The sole exception to this is the old capital of Kastro, which remains an example of medieval town planning. A collection of Archaic and Hellenistic sculpture and of ceramics from the Geometric to the Byzantine period is on display in the Archaeological Museum of the island.

Picturesque windmills surrender their sails to the vagaries of the wind, while no fewer than 365 churches and chapels sprout all over the island like white mushrooms from the grey carpet of the island's terrain.

There are clean and attractive beaches on the island, while the visitor can combine the peaceful island existence close to nature to a lively night life.
