Serifos is located in the western Cyclades, south of Kythnos and northwest of Sifnos. It is part of Milos region. It has a population of around 1,400 (anno 2001).
According to Greek mythology: When Acrisius was warned by an oracle that his own grandson would kill him, he cast his daughter (Danaë) and her infant son Perseus adrift at sea in a wooden chest, which came ashore at Serifos.

The enchanting Chora is the capital of the island with white houses, windmills, and stonepaved walkways, built on an almost perpendicular rock. With its breathtaking views over the Aegean sea it is classified among the most beautiful capital towns of the Greek islands. Serifos is with its charming paths and astonishing views an obvious choice for hikers.
