The Treasury of the Siphnians was one of the most opulent at ancient Delphi, surpassing even the Athenian.

Sifnos is famous for its pottery, poets, and chefs. It's probably the most popular island of the western Cyclades, with thousands of visitors in summer. There are charming villages, gently rolling green hills, watermelon patches, vineyards, olive groves, and long sandy beaches.

Exploratory walking is a pleasure, as the island is strewn with sights such as bougainvillea, wind-bent pines, dovecotes, windmills, little chapels, and ancient towers.
