As you descend close to it, the sight of Panagia Chryssopigi can make your heart smile. It is an all-white church perched on a rock, literally in the sea. The monastery, which is now inactive, its cells offered as accommodations for visitors, prevails over the small cape that separates the cove of Faros into two parts. It was built in 1615 in order to house the icon of Zoodochos Pigi (Life-giving fountain), which was saved from the sea by fishermen. Panagia Chryssopigi is the patroness of Sifnos and is celebrated on Ascension Day, 40 days after Easter, with majestic ceremonies and festivals in which the whole island participates. Chryssopigi is 8 kilometers from Apollonia
