A stop at the church of Chrysopigi is necessary, not only to see the small church on a rock connected with the island by a small bridge, but also to admire the amazing view and the beach which is one of the best of the island. One of the main occupations of the islanders was the handmade production of pottery and to this day there are some locals who keep the tradition alive. In the center of Sifnos you can find the capital town of Apollonia with the narrow streets and the white houses that characterize the traditional towns in the Cyclades and in a close distance the village of Artemonas with the panoramic views and the delicious restaurants and patisseries.
