If I had to pick one word that reminds of Sifnos it would definitely be: Church. There are 365 churches in total (!!) and the island is not that big hahah
I went for a walk in Apollonia and I came across one in every corner! We’ve been there before at night and it was full of people on the streets and rooftops until late. However, during Sunday in the afternoon the streets were completely empty and somehow really peaceful.
I saw a big cathedral on the top of the hill and got lost in the paths trying to get there with no map. I eventually found it and it was completely worth it. The view from above is so beautiful, with all the white houses, blue windows and pink flowers.
Saí caminhando por Apollonía e dava de cara com uma a cada esquina! Nós passamos por lá à noite e era cheio de gente nas ruas e nos terraços até bem tarde da noite. Mas no Domingo à tarde as ruas estavam completamente vazias. Davam até uma sensação de paz.
Eu vi uma catedral linda de longe no topo de um morro e me perdi nas ruelas tentando chegar lá em mapa. Eventualmente cheguei e valeu muito a pena. A vista de cima é linda com todas as casinhas brancas, janelas azuis e flores rosas.
