The Virgin Mary Catholic Church and accompanying Three Bells of Fira are much-photographed landmarks in Fira on Santorini Island. A famous location for wedding photos, the church features an immaculate white facade and beautiful blue domes. The current structure was built in 1757, and refurbished and expanded multiple times over the centuries. The contrast between the white buildings and the blue waters surrounding Santorini is unforgettable. The church is set high on volcanic cliffs and almost seems to float aloft. The spectacular scenery makes for amazing photos!

Zavidovo's Blue Top Church
For the first time before coming to Russia, in order to highlight the "cultural level"
also bought a Lonely Planet Lonely Planet Raiders book
impression of its cover On top is a blue-top church
in Russia can see a lot of this blue-top church
Zavidovo has a one even in the snow
it can always scatter the clouds to meet the blue sky / Hh/
lunch at Zavidovo on the tower and the tower in the high tower of the museum.
circle the tower as if reminding me of countless trips from the tower to Europe. Overlooking the sights
and eating in the tower, I never thought about it
sitting in the tower and looking out the window, the blue dome church is a pleasure.
A friend has been to the Blue Top Church and said that it is very difficult to find. Walking from the bus station to the Blue Top Church for nearly 30 minutes, I took a lot of detours with Google Maps. But the whole Fira is not much, so I opened the Baidu map to see, along the way to see the blue top direction of the road to abandon the navigation guide to take a shortcut. After a dilapidated parking lot, collapsed buildings, narrow alleys, ten minutes later, the blue top appeared. Perhaps only by personal experience can have their own feelings. At this moment, I feel that going to Santorini to take a wedding dress has the feeling of going to the rape field to make a wedding dress. Blue-white, yellow-green, blue-white, yellow-green, single color, single style, more is a feeling, in contrast, I prefer the colorful island of Mykonos. The platform next to the blue top is scattered around with some Chinese people with an easel, giving a strong cultural atmosphere.
When I saw Fira's Blue Top Church, I finally understood why National Geographic magazine chose it in the hundreds of blue-roofed churches on the Holy Island because it echoed the opposite island. Of course it is not so easy to find. Let me put some real strategy.
First, walk along the cliff trail and you will see this well-identified church, where I also took a few wedding photos for a couple of new people.
National Geographic magazine has taken a photo of a group of awesome blue-top churches in the town of Fira, which once made me want to find out where the church is. The
Blue Top Church is the landmark of the Holy Island, but there are many seats on the island, white walls and blue roofs. It looks like a long distance. If you take photos and ask people on the Holy Island, Almost all the people of the Holy Island will tell you that the Blue Top Church is in front, and there are blue-roof churches everywhere. But in the end, the most famous one is actually not necessarily known to the people on the Holy Island. It is not the most famous in their eyes, because every step is really a landscape.
Of course, for tourists, especially my obsessive tourists.
I have seen this star church on postcards countless times. When I learned that the church was on the edge of the cliff not far from our hotel, I would take my husband to have a look.
actually wants to find the Saint Maria church on the cover of National Geographic magazine, it is still very simple. The Blue Top Church is located between Fira and Firostefani and can be found along the seaside trail.
Blue Top Church~ The most beautiful photo taking time is around 10am, and the sun is not very strong. But the entire blue top can be illuminated evenly without too many shadows.
Of course, the evening sunset will be very beautiful here too. That small iron gate was accessible before. It is now locked up. So you can only look at it from a distance. You can't stand next to the photo.
