Sifnos Kastro Village


Kastro Village Sifnos: Kastro village is a lovely cliff-top village situated at 5 kilometres east of Apollonia. It offers a magnificent panoramic view of the sea and is inhabited since the prehistoric period, as testify the many findings coming from the various archaeological excavations.

Kastro has been built in the ruins of the ancient capital of Sifnos and is the only village of the island with a strong medieval character. A big part of its boundary walls survives as well as the features of a Venetian fortress. Narrow little streets,old entrances called the lozies, beautiful two-storey houses, superb old mansions and 16th and 17th century churches with ornamental floors compose the incredible beauty of Kastro.

Venetian coats of arms and ancient wall-fragments can still be seen on most of the houses of the village. Visitors can also see some remains of the ancient acropolis and a small archaeological museum. Rooms for rent, taverns, bars and cafes will provide you the best holiday experience.

We traveled to Sifnos in Oct. 2010 . . . out first trip to Greece. After several days in Athens it was such a relief to get to a small and still very traditional Greek Island. While many of the businesses were closed there were still enough open throughout the island to provide us with a fabulous experience. We were based in Kamares and used the excellent bus service to visit other villages, towns & beaches throughout the island. The highlights were Appolonia, Artemonus, Kastro, Vathi, Platys Yiaslis, & Heronosis. The food was excellent, local wine good & inexpensive, the locals kind, courteous and helpful. I will always remember Sifnos as one of the most wonderful experiences of my life!
