The beautiful Μonastery of Zoodochos Pigi on a hill overlooking the castle with magnificent views of both the mountain and the whole of Sikinos.
The monastery was built in 1690, it was a women’s monastery and for many years it was the only shelter of the residents against the pirate raids, and it is in the form of a castle with a high external wall.
The first king of Greece, Otto, terminated its operation in 1834. Chryssopigi was the last resort for the inhabitants each time Sikinos was raided by the pirates: neither the heavy wooden gate nor the high walls, crypts, secret passages, battlements, ramparts, breakout exits toward the cliff averted raping, slaughtering, and annihilation of the defenseless peasants.

The monastery can be visited every afternoon & evening.

The feast of Zoodochos Pigi, the first Friday after Easter. On the Eve there is a meal at the Monastery.
