Serifos, Greece

Serifos, is located in the Cyclades island group of Greece in the beautiful Aegean Sea, just south of Kythnos.

Legend has it that when Acrisius was warned that he would be killed by his grandson, Perseus, he cast him, along with the baby’s mother Danae, into a vessel and set them adrift at sea. Serifos is where the vessel eventually came ashore. Rock formations found at Seriphos mysteriously resemble the myth of this story, as if they had all been turned to stone.

In the main town of Serifos or Hora, you will find small cube shaped houses and churches in the traditional Cycladic design. With a Venetian castle looming above, it has been notably referred to as a fairy tale town. From the village of Panagia, you can see a panoramic view of the entire island. At Livadi, you will find a beautiful horseshoe shaped beach.
