Black Tower

In Sifnos there’s a network of 76 mostly ruined ancient towers, built between the 6th and the 3rd centuryB.C, that were used to warn the inhabitants of approaching pirates or any other emergency. Two of them are maintained in good condition, the White Tower (Aspros Pyrgos), next to the street that leads to Platis Gyalos, and the Black Tower (Mavros Pirgos) in Exambela village, close to Apollonia.
