Anafi

Anafi

Info

Athens News Agency

The small island of Anafi is found in the southeast of the Cyclades complex in the center of the Aegean Sea, with Santorini being the nearest island. Anafi has a population of roughly 300 people and in the past was used as a place of exile.

According to ancient Greek mythology, the god Apollo ordered Anafi to rise from the sea to provide refuge to Jason and the Argonauts during a fierce storm.

The island is ideal for tourists who like quiet vacations and because of its small size everything is within walking distance. Visitors are welcomed by the beautiful beaches of Klissidi, Roukouna and Aghii Anargiri, by picturesque villages with unique architecture, the ancient ruins of the Temple of Apollo and the monastery of Panagia Kalamiotissa (The Virgin Mary of Kalamos), also know as Zoodochos Pigi (Virgin Mary the Giver of Life). The monastery of Kalamiotissa is built on the monolithic peak of Kalamos, one of the highest in the Mediterranean, at 584 meters, second only to the Rock of Gibraltar.

Anafi is of archaeological as well as mythological interest. At the monastery of Panagia Kalamiotissa, there are ruins of a temple built as an offering to Apollo Aegletus.

Ruins are also found at Kasteli, and most of the findings, such as statues, are now housed in the small Archaeological Museum in Chora, the island's capital town.

Another attraction for tourists is the local architecture, with the distinctive built furnaces (fourni).

The first inhabitants of the Anafiotika neighborhood, at the foot of the Acropolis hill in Athens, were the extremely skilled craftsmen from Anafi, who were invited by King Otto in the 1830s to build him a new palace. Because they stayed in Athens for a long time they built their homes under the Acropolis to resemble their homes back in Anafi.
