Unique ortodox church by the rocks. Its an amazing spot for a swim or a walk by the sea. A must see if you are on the island. Worth a visit.

Walking Destination with Swimming and Tavernas Nearby to Eat
Sep 2018 • Friends
We missed the hours to go in to the Church/ Monastery but we peered through the window and could see that it was lovely. Several of my friends swam in the sea (but not all, as it was quite windy) which was welcome after a lot of hiking. Afterwards we had a lovely dinner at the first taverna on the beach nearby.

A fascinating experience...
Sep 2018 • Friends
The Monastery of Panagia (Our Lady) Chrissopigi is one of the most beautiful monasteries of Greece, not to be missed out if you visit Sifnos. It was built in the 17th century and is located on breath taking small peninsula, brilliant in white neighborhing crystal clean blue and azure sea waters. It is the patron of the island and is highly celebrated nine days after Easter, on the day of Zoodochou Pigis. Very popular spot and church for weddings with clean beaches, sandy, pebbles and rocky to the right of the monastery, and attractive fish tavernas on the waves to enjoy local dishes and fresh fish daily catches. It is easy to get in few minutes drive from Apollonian, the capital of the island. Don't miss to visit this place...it is a rewarding experience to remember foe ever!

Must see
May 2018 • Couples
The coastline from Kastro to Platys Gialos is exceptional and the high spot is the monastery Panagia Chrissopi which is a must see destination on Sifnos. The monastery is stunning, beautifully kept and very popular for local weddings.

A fascinating monastery in a stunning location
Sep 2017
The monastery is beautiful, with a very serene feeling. The icons inside are exceptional, and the stories behind them are fascinating. I particularly liked the story of the split in the rock leading to the monastery. I wish I had had the time to swim in the beach beside it.

A romantic beach

The church is marvelous and the beach nearby is quite and peaceful. There are no sun beds so you need to bring blankets or something similar

Sifnos landmark

Must see in Sifnos. Great scenery especially during sunset. Ask for monastery history. Easy access by car. Can even swim among the rocks.

Exceptional location for monastary
Jul 2017 • Family
The monastary sits on a rock surrounded by the aegean sea. Very pictoresque. Get there before eleven then there won't be that many tourists. The visit takes about 30 minutes so you should combine it with a swim at the apokoftes beach which is a very nice sandy beach. It makes the visit more complete. The other beach to the right of the monastary is a stone beach.
