Sifnos is known for its long-lasting gastronomic tradition and is nicknamed the “island of flavors” in the Cyclades.

To the present day, it is an island that is characterized by its authentic Greek cuisine, ceramic pottery, and exceptional architecture. The abundance of raw materials allowed the inhabitants to put their crafts to use and has helped spread the art of pottery all over Greece. Today there are more than 12 pottery workshops, which can be found in the picturesque settlements of Kamares, Faros, Vathi and Platis Gialos.
