According to mythology, the creation of the Cyclades is attributed to God Poseidon. It is said that the god of the sea transformed the Cyclades nymphs into islands, when they angered him.
The name of the island derived either from the Phoenician word “phelekgundari” which means rocky or from the first inhabitant of the island, Folegandros, a son of the King Minos of Crete.
Folegandros has built its own myth as the island of the “measure” as the residents have managed to maintain the authenticity of this mysterious island alive. It will be quite easy to adapt to the simple rhythms of life of Folegandros.
