    I Left my Heart in Chrysopigi, Sifnos Greece

    Sifnos (Greek: Σίφνος) is a small island of about 74 km² located within the Western Cyclades. Inhabited since very early times, Sifnos's main claim to fame in ancient world was for its gold and silver mines, some still remains, as a result of which the island became known by the 6th century BC as one of the most prosperous places in Greece.
