The impressive Monastery of Zoodochos Pigi is built on the hill above Kastro and has a magical view of both the sea and nearly all of Sikinos. The monastery was built in 1690, it was a monastery for women and for very many years it was the only refuge for the inhabitants from pirates' raids, hence its shape of a castle with a high, exterior wall. The monastery can be visited during afternoon hours and it will need some effort during the ascent on the cobbled footpath that starts from Kastro.
