In the center of the Aegean Sea, in the area of Western Cyclades, emerges the island of Sifnos which with its beauty fascinates every visitor. According to Greek mythology, and that is where the island owes its name, “Sifnos” was the name of the son of the Attic hero “Sounio”, whose name was given to the island, while in another version, it came from the epithet “Sifnos” which means empty and refers to the existence of many lodges that exist on the island, due to the great mining activity of the island. Some more names according to Plinius were “Akis” and Merope, who was the granddaughter of King Minos of Creta. The history is diffused throughout the island and travelers are able to discover it by walking through the paths and settlements of the island.
