It is a very nice archeological site with an amazing view, easy access and a great small museum. It is accessible with pushchairs and small kids can enjoy the walk too. The energy of the place is very intense too, one can feel the importance of the site for the island through the centuries.

This is one of those places that I only heard about thanks to Trip advisor, and I'm very glad I did. For anyone who is at all interested in history, specifically of Sifnos but of greece in general, you must visit Agios Andreas. The last bus from apollonia is at 11 and returns at 12:30 I think, but I hiked... More

Our family of five (16,11 & 10) took a taxi from Kamares (14€). The new museum was small but interesting. The ruins are thought provoking. Would always like these places 'Brought to life' but it's clearly early days. We had it to ourselves. A pity given the crowds left on the beach and probably not aware of it. The loos... More

This ancient site is well worth viewing. There is a small museum which is beautifully laid out. The ancient Mycanean walls are impressive and then it is eorth visiting the church of Agios Andreas.

The turn off for the archaelogical site on Sifnos is located on the road to Vathy. The road is quite steep but paved all the way and is signposted. The site itself was a Mycenean fortress and there is a museum there also which has displays of recovered coinage and pottery from both the classical and Mycenean Era. At the... More

Although there is a car park nearby, we parked our scooter on the road and walked up the steep hill to Aghios Andreas. The church is beautiful and very peaceful inside even though when I was there the wind was howling around the building. Great views across sifnos. The archaeological site- acropolis is also very interesting.

Awarded in 2012 by the "Europa Nostra" organization as a prototype of an excellent promotion of an ancient acropolis, this location also offers a thrilling view of most of this historical Cycladic island. The dig revealed a 12th century b.C. Mycenaean wall girding the foundations of an archaic settlement where a variety of buildings (temples, houses, shops and water works)... More
