Artemonas is located one and a half kilometres to the north of Apollonia and has been described as a true jewel of Sifnos. It's mansion houses are neoclassical in design and around every corner you will find gardens and courtyards filled with flowers. High above Artemonas, on the top of a hill, stands a row of windmills, unfortunately only two are in good condition today. It's worth talking the time to see the windmills because the view from here is truly panoramic, stretching out over the neighbouring islands, the majestic Kastro, and across the central villages to as far as Kamares.
Artemonas is known as the birthplace of the noted schoolmaster and national hero of the revolution, Nikolaos Chryogelou (1780-1857) who was also the first minister of education after the liberation of Greece. Another famous son of Artemonas is the poet and scholar Ioannis Grypari (1870-1942).
