Fyrogia - Prophet Elias Monastery

This trail is the famous ascent to the Holy Monastery of Profitis Ilias, at the highest point of Sifnos (682 m. above sea level). It is not a hard trail to walk but the constant ascent takes hours! In any case, the 360ᵒ view from the top will graciously reward your efforts!  The Profitis Ilias Monastery is a very impressive building, based on an ancient fortification. It became a monks monastery probably in the 12th c. A.D., and ran as such until 1890.
