Sifnos Profitis Elias Monastery is standing on the highest mountain of Sifnos island, 680 meters above the sea level. The footpath leading to the monastery is sometimes narrow and steep. You will need at least one hour walking to reach the top so you have to take care for your water provisions during hot summer days.
The marvelous view of Sifnos and other Aegean islands from the top will be a unique reward of your uphill trekking but visibility depends also on weather conditions. The annual feast is on 19th of July.
Sifnos Profitis Elias Monastery was built around 1650, on the ruins of an ancient acropolis.
