Sifnos was one of the richest places in the ancient world, not only because of its development of ceramic arts, but it also flourished due to its gold, silver mines, and rich mineral deposits. Today, it is an island that is characterized by its authentic Greek cuisine, ceramic pottery, and exceptional architecture. Its abundance of raw materials allowed the inhabitants to put their crafts to use and has helped spread the art of pottery all over Greece. Nowadays, it has more than 12 pottery workshops, which can be found in the picturesque settlements of Kamares, Faros, Vathi, and Platis Gialos. The former capital of Sifnos was Kastro, a fortified castle made by a wall of Sifnian marble, protecting its inhabitants in prehistoric times.
All around the island, visitors will also see plenty of fortified towers, which were used in earlier days as lookout points, in case of unexpected raids from pirates.
