The ancient city of Anafi was built in the 8th century by Dorians. During the Byzantine period it was tormented by pirate invasions. In 1537, after Venetian occupation, the island was conquered by Ottomans (after it was first invaded by Hayreddin Barbarossa). The builders who immigrated to Athens from Anafi during the period of 1860-1870, built the scenic Anafiotika district on the foot of Acropolis Rock taking as an example the architectural style of Anafi's capital Chora. The island extends over a surface of 40 km2, its coastline is 33 km long and it has 250 inhabitants.

Anafi is first and foremost an island for walking around on, since the roads are very bad and there are no opportunities to rent a car.
The capital is the village Chora, which is a small, idyllic place with little cafes and tiny chapels.
Kastelli is an ancient settlement from the 9th century BC. In the 15th century the Venetians built a citadel on top of it, and the ruins you see today are mainly from then.
