Serifos, the small island of Cyclades with the wildest beauty
Serifos has many picturesque places. The classic Cycladic beauty is evident in every corner! Start from from the ruins of the Venetian castle at the top of the hill where Chora is built, to gaze at the sunset and enjoy ,at the highest point, where the church of Agios Konstantinos is located, a stunning view.
Descending to Chora, wander in its picturesque alleys and end up in the beautiful cobbled square of Agios Athanasios, the neoclassical town hall and the taverns with the colorful chairs and the flower pots. Visit the archeological and folklore museum.
An admittedly unusual experience that you ‘ll have in Serifos is the visit to the main area of the mine in Megalo Livadi. You will get a glimpse of the conditions under which the miners of the island lived for many years, along the old rails, the abandoned wagons and the degraded bridges.
The beaches of Serifos – which, according to the locals, are more than 70 - all stand out for their genuine beauty. Sandy or pebbled, golden from the light sand or colorful thanks to the mosaic of pebbles, all have crystal waters!
