Kamares – Churches of Agia Marina and Agia Katerina

Relaxed walks in Sifnos

The chapel of Agia Marina is actually a balcony to the Aegean. It is located in Kamares, on the right side of the bay at the foothill of Agios Simeon. About 95 low and broad steps will lead you there. Do not let the number put you off. It takes only five minutes to climb up these steps. The ideal time to go is at sunset and that’s because as the sun sets into the sea the colors opposite the church are simply breathtaking.

At a little bigger distance, but without steps lies the chapel of Agia Aikaterini. Once arriving in the village of Agia Marina turn left. At the end of the asphalt road, a narrow dirt path begins which is almost on the seafront. The route to Agia Aikaterini takes about 15 minutes but the view will really captivate you as the bay of Kamares unravels before your eyes.
