Sikinos has retained all of its island character, and this adds to
its attractions for those in search of peace and an authentic atmosphere.
The island has been inhabited since ancient times, as has been proved
by the finds made in the Episkopi ad".
The only road on Sikinos links Alopronia, the island's harbour, with
Hora or Kastro, one of the most beautiful villages anywhere in the Cyclades.
There are fine stone mansions to admire, and a church of Our Lady 'Pantanassa'.
The Zoodoho. Pigi monastery, built on the peak of a rock, is more reminiscent
of an impregnable castle from a distance. As on all the more isolated Cycladic
islands, the local religious feasts are celebrated with great enthusiasm.
There are a few rooms for rent on Sikinos, all of them in Hora. Basic meals
are served at the island's restaurants and tavernas
