logo Serifos
The presence of mineral deposits in Serifos has been known since ancient times. During the Roman rule, but especially during the Venetian rule, in the 14th century, intensive mining was carried out to meet the needs of the great naval power of that time. The sightseers mention the transportation of slaves in the underground arcades and the existence of four benefices which were separated based on the mineralized zones.
- The ‘katikies’ were built in the countryside of Serifos and all the types of habitation were based on this form. They are single-roomed, with a narrow facade and a low height, and they are in total harmony with the environment of the island. The walls have been made of raw stones and shale rocks without synthetic fillers and they are not plastered. In the interior there was a fireplace for cooking and in the background there was the bed that was elevated and supported by a big beam (‘peratis’).
