The definitive site for your visit to Greece
Bare, undulating hills interspersed with small valleys cover the island. The rocky coast line is deeply indented with a succession of coves and bays.
The curious rock formations resemble human figures which call to mind the myth of Danae, Perseus and Medusa, as if these prehistoric inhabitants of the island had been turned to stone.
Ferries call at Livadi, the sheltered port on the eastern side of the island, where there is a long horseshoe sandy beach.
Area 73 sq. km. Distance from Piraeus 70 n. Miles.
Perched on the top of a steep hill, Hora or Serifos, the main town of the island, with its little cube shaped houses and churches in the island style, with its Venetian castle above, looks like a fairytale town.
The fortress-like monastery Moni Taxiarchon near the village of Galani, which houses some fine wall paintings and important books and manuscripts is of special interest.
The village of Panagia commands a panoramic view of the whole island.
