Serifos is an island in the Aegean Sea belonging to Cyclades. The capital of the island is Chora which is built at an altitude of 200m. The island started to flourish in the early 20th century, when they settled mining companies that exploited the rich substratum.

Serifos, although a small island, has many golden sandy beaches filled with the features of tamarisk that can satisfy every taste. The great story of the island gives you the ability to see many attractions, archaeological sites and museums. Serifos is ideal place for a holiday as it is able to offer you calm when you need but also the crowds of a tourist resort.

In Greek mythology, Serifos is where Danaë and her infant son Perseus washed ashore after her father Acrisius, in response to an oracle that his own grandson would kill him, set them adrift at sea in a wooden chest. When Perseus returned to Serifos with the head of the Gorgon Medusa, he turned Polydektes, the king of Serifos, and his retainers into stone as punishment for the king's attempt to marry his mother by force.

There are signs of the island’s habitation that go back to the Protocycladic period. The Mycenaeans arrived in Serifos in about 1800BC, while the Cretan Minoans and the Phoenicians have been in Serifos even before them.

The island had a big development during the 6th century BC due to the mines. During that period, the island became an Ionian colony and adopted the democratic regime, while it also participates in the Amphictyony of Dilos. The island’s development is so big during that period that it even has its own currency.

During the Persian Wars, Serifos participates initially by being behind the Persians. Later however, it joins the 1st Athenean Alliance, accepting at the same time the leading presence of Athens.

In 146 BC Serifos, as well as the rest of the Greek territories, plays into the hands of the Romans. Because of its alliance with Mithridates VI against them, the Romans destroy completely the island in 88 BC. This fact has been the initiation of a long period of declination.

The Hellenistic Era has left behind it towers and castles, as well as interesting findings, which had been used as a protection from the numerous pirate raids on Serifos during that period.
In 1204 - arrival of the Franks – a new period of acme begins for Serifos, during which the island has known great cultural and economic development and the island’s mines were put again into operation after 1000 years.

In 1207, the island enters the ducat of the Aegean (1207-1334). It becomes the apple of discord among several families until the destructive invasion of Barbarossa (1537). Serifos suffers numerous pirate raids during that period.

During the times of the Turkish domination, Serifos is subject to the Sultan until its accession to the Ottoman state in 1566 and the devolution of governance to the Jew, Joseph Nazi.

During the 1821 revolution, many inhabitants participate in the battles against the Ottomans. This is another period of decline for Serifos, while pirate raids continue.

The modern history of Serifos is directly connected with its mines. In 1867, the first official mining permit is granted. In 1884, the French company “Spiliazeza” known from Lavrio assigns the management of the mining operations in Serifos to the German mineralogist, Emilios Gromman.

In 1916, a strike was triggered off due to the inhuman working conditions and the lack of safety measures in the mines. During the strike, incidents take place that will cost the life of four workers and two police officers. This is the first bloody revolt in Greece of the modern times.

In 1941, Serifos goes under the Italian administration, in the framework of the Greek territories’ occupation by the Axon Forces, while following the capitulation of Italy in 1943, the island goes under the German administration until its liberation.
