is a small and rocky island between Sikinos and Milos. Visitors
will be struck by the wild beauty of the barren landscape, where
huge rocks alternate with sandy beaches. On a flat expanse above
the pretty harbour of Karavostasi is Hora or Folegandros, which
consists of two section. In the old settlement in the Kastro area,
the outer walls of the houses form the sort of defensive precinct
to be found else where in the Cyclades.
The new quarter is just as pretty, with narrow alleys, stepped walls, courtyards, wooden balconies and typically Aegean churches. The finest church on the island, that of Our Lady, stands above a section of the ancient wall.
