The island’s position at the south end of the Cyclades and in the center of South Aegean, surrounded by Milos, Kimolos, Polyaigos, Sifnos, Antiparos, Paros, Sikinos, Ios and Santorini makes it an ideal destination for a relaxing escape and recreation.
Folegandros is one of the most untouched small islands of the Cyclades. The narrow streets and the successive squares of Chora create a unique theatrical setting. The hospitality of the people combined with the traditional recipes and local products will make your stay here special. Folegandros is the ideal destination for summer vacations and diving in Greece since it provides a serene environment of unique natural beauty for a limited number of visitors.
According to Greek mythology, Folegandros’ first inhabitants were shepherds from West Greece. Historically, the first inhabitants of the island were the Carians from Asia Minor. Followed by the Minoans under the leadership of Folegandros, son of Minoas king of Crete, after whom the island was named. In 1204 the island was conquered by the Venetians. The noble man Markos Sanudos built the famous castle of Folegandros to protect the inhabitants from the pirates. Finally, Folegandros was under Turkish domination until 1828, time at which it was freed and attached to Greece. During the 20th century it was a place of exile for political prisoners.
