 Folegandros is part of the Cyclades complex; a beautiful gem right in the center of the Southern Aegean. Folegandros is surrounded by Milos, Sikinos, Sifnos, and Santorini and occupies an area of 32 square km with almost 800 inhabitants. Often overlooked as a tourist spot, it is an ideal sailing destination in Greece, thanks to its pleasurable weather conditions and unspoiled natural setting. According to mythology, the island was inhabited by shepherds and was named “Polyandros” at the time, which translates to “many men.” In the following years Folegandros, the son of King Minos of Crete, gave his name to the island, but there is also evidence that the word “Phelekgundari” (meaning “rocky” in Phoenician) was where it was derived from. Indeed, an island with rocky outcrops nicknamed by Greeks as the land of Iron (Sidira), for its impressive barren landscape and serene atmosphere. 

 This island has charming squares, whitewashed houses, and bougainvilleas. Many tourists admit that Folegandros has one of the most enjoyable strolls in the Aegean. The medieval settlement of Kastro and the Church of Panagia are some sites you will come across in Chora.
