SERIFOS HISTORY

Serifos is reported by the ancient years. There is the myth of Perseas who killed the dangerous Medusa, who stayed at the palace of King Dikti of Serifos. It is also said that there stayed the Cyclopes.

The first inhabitants of Serifos were of aeolian origin. Later it was inhabited by Kares, Finikes, Cretans and Ionians. Romans used the island as a place of exile. The Ptolemians of Egypt conquered the island in 266 b.C. In 363 b.C, Serifos was conquered by Macedonians. The island met with great growth during the time that Francs were prevailed. During that time, the mines began to operate after many centuries of interruption. Serifos was conquered by Turks in 1537.
