VATHI - SIFNOS

Sifnos Vathi | The village and the beach of VathiVathi is situated at the south-west side of Sifnos. The toponym Vathi means that the port is situated in a deeper, lower part in comparison with the surrounding area or that the sea is quite deep near the land so that the ships can approach it.

On the road from Apollonia to Katavati and to Vathi, you shall meet the monastery of Fyrogia and after a while on your right there is the hill of Agios Andreas with the homonymous church on its top, which has been built in 1701. At this area there is one of the most important archaeological sites of Sifnos. The archaeological findings here show the continuous inhabiting of Sifnos from the Mycenean to the Hellenistic Times.
