Apollonia. Apollonia is the ancient capital of the Greek island of Sifnos, in the Cyclades. It is a village with white houses, narrow streets and churches with blue domes. Many houses in the village have picturesque courtyards adorned with colorful flowers. Apollonia is built on three hills and consists of several small villages. These villages have been expanding and over the decades they’ve grown closer together. Primarily Kato and Pano Petali, but also Katavati and Artemonas form this municipal area.
The name Apollonia comes from the Greek god Apollo who was honored here in ancient times. In the village are all kinds of interesting churches, such as the Cathedral of Aghios Spyridon.
