Welcome to Koufonisia!
Koufonisia is a former community in the Cyclades, Greece. Since the 2011 local government reform it is part of the municipality Naxos and Lesser Cyclades, of which it is a municipal unit. The municipal unit has an area of 26.025 km2.
Koufonisia includes three main islands:
- Epano, Pano or Ano Koufonisi (for Upper) often merely called Koufonisi
- Kato Koufonisi (for Lower) and
- Keros or Karos
Geographically, they are located on the south-southeast side of Naxos and on the west-northwest of Amorgos and belong to the archipelago of the Lesser East Cyclades. Uninhabited Keros is a protected archaeological site from which a large number of ancient Cycladic art pieces have been excavated in the 20th century.
