SIFNOS SIFNOS CHURCHES

CLICK TO VIEW ACTUAL PHOTO SIZE

A walk along the main pedestrian sidewalk will reveal many churches that are integrally linked with and absolutely incorporated into the settlement as a whole. It is worth visiting the church of the Timios Stavros (True Cross), a type of shortened, domed cross-in-square church, possibly dating from the 17th century, as well as the church of the Taxiarchis (Archangel), of the same architectural type, which has plaques inlaid on the outer wall of the apse and over the entrance, and a marvellous templon (icon screen). As you proceed, you'll encounter the two-aisled flat-roofed basilica dedicated to Ayios Athanasios and the church of the Metamorphosis tou Sotiros (Transfiguration of the Saviour), another two-aisled flat-roofed basilica with two splendid icon screens. Another aesthetic treat is provided by the church of Ayios Sozon with its fine wall paintings and the church of Panayia Barou. Walking up the main street, after Rambayas Square, one's attention is drawn to the cathedral of Ayios Spyridon on the left which was remodelled in 1901. On the other side of Apollonia, the church of Panayia Ouranofora or Geraniofora is also worth seeing, on which the date 1767 has been preserved, when the church was refurbished. It was very likely built on the ruins of an ancient temple, in whose courtyard the Lolopaneyiro, a frenzied feast with abundant food, drink, dancing and singing, used to take place on 2 February.
