The most important sightseeing in Sikinos is the Ancient Site of Episkopi, that was originally a Roman mausoleum and was later turned into a Byzantine monastery. Another interesting place to visit in Sikinos is the Folklore Museum, housed in an old olive press. In Sikinos, spend your days at the relaxing and secluded beaches on the island, while in the evenings head to Chora, a picturesque village with Cycladic style and a couple of nice taverns.
