Greek Islands: Sifnos / Cyclades

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA)    A grey landscape of rock, broken up here and there by a gleaming white chapel, is the first impression on visitors as the ferry draws into the harbour of the island of Sifnos. On a plateau six kilometers from the port, one encounters a unique spectacle: the whole of the plateau is covered with sparkling white villages which virtually blend into one another. The island was famous in ancient times for the wealth, which came from its gold and silver mines and the quarries of Sifnos stone. It enjoyed great prosperity in classical times, as can be seen from its treasury, dedicated to Apollo at Delphi.     More info: Tourist Guide
