Sifnos - island portrait
Villages lie in the foothills surrounded by olive groves with 60,000 trees. Oleander and wild fig grow in clusters in the ravines, and almond and olive trees thrive – especially in the high valleys. Across the island you see dove-cotes, looking like little castles, where pigeons are fattened for the cooking pot. Windmills and half-ruined watchtowers dot the island’s gentle contours. Sifnos has soft white light, not the blinding white dazzle of, say, Santorini, Mykonos, or Paros.
