A tiny island of the Cyclades, between Folegandros and Ios, Sikinos was named after Sikinos, the son of King of Lemnos island,  Thoanta. There are signs of human activity on the island since the Neolithic period.

Sikinos is 41,5 km2 and nowadays has a population of approx. 250. The island has only three settlements Alopronia, Chorio, and Kastro.
