Sifnos – General Information
Sifnos belongs to a small group of islands called the ‘Western Cyclades’.
Its unique features compared to the other islands are: its traditional
way of life and architecture, its unconventional quality of tourism,
the friendliness and warm hospitality of its people, the unspoiled
and well-preserved small churches and monasteries and its brilliant
sunlight, the ‘Apollonian Light’. Sifnos has also a long food tradition,
since the best Chefs are Sifnians and are famous world-wide. Whatever

the Sun’ ‘…… if you find yourselves there, you’ll know
