FOLEGANDROS

Folegandros is a small, rocky island in the Aegean Sea, between the islands of Sikinos and Milos in Greece. The wild beauty and the barren landscape of Folegandros strike the visitor, where huge rock formations alternate with sandy beaches.

Folegandros

On a flat expanse above the pretty harbor of Karavostasi is Hora or Folegandros, which consists of two sections. In the old settlement in the Kastro area, the outer walls of the houses form the sort of defensive precinct to be found else where in the Cyclades. The new quarter is just as pretty, with narrow alleys, stepped walls, courtyards, wooden balconies and typically Aegean churches. The finest church on the island, that of Our Lady, stands above a section of the ancient wall.

Chrissospilia, nearby to the north, with stalactites, stalagmites and traces of ancient occupation, and the small settlements in the Ano Meria district are the sights to be seen around the island's main village.

Ano Meria also has the Ecological and folklore Museum with exhibits, which reconstruct the farming practices of the islanders. Among the best beaches for swimming are Karavostasi, Livadi and Agios Georgios bay.

Although Folegandros has little in the way of tourist amenities or roads, it attracts more and more visitors each year, mainly those in search of solitude close to nature.

Area 32 sq. km.
Distance from Piraeus 106 n m
