Dramatically positioned on a crag with sheer drops to the crystalline waters below and terraced valleys all around, Kastro is Sifnos' most atmospheric and magical settlement. Until 1836 it was the island's capital but now it's a sleepy place, with only a single excellent taverna and a couple of seasonal cafes as its main signs of life.
