Churches, monasteries, a Venetian castle and an indefinable aura that is connected to the inhabitants’ well being and health and which is probably due to the island’s soil that is rich in minerals.
The island has also been attached to the mythological figure of Perseas, who was washed up on the island, locked in a box. Perseas grew up on the island and from here he set out to kill the terrible Medusa, who had turned Sifnos’ king, Polydektis, into stone and the island into a barren land.
