About Santorini

Next to the Parthenon in Athens, the famous blue church domes on Santorini Island are instantly recognizable. Set high above the blue waters of the Aegean Sea, Santorini is a timeless wonder. The cliffs drop down some 300 m, making the towns and buildings seem precariously perched close to the sheer edge. A central lagoon formed when the volcanic caldera collapsed in a massive eruption some 3600 years ago. Today Santorini is a renowned tourist destination. Quaint villages and Mediterranean architecture make for stunning photos. The sunsets are incredible and temperatures remain pleasant even in the high summer months. Well-connected to the rest of Greece, Santorini is a near paradise on Earth and should be on any traveler’s bucket list.

The town of Oia is the second largest town in Santorini. The blue and white church and traditional windmills are landmarks known worldwide. The blue and white buildings against the backdrop of the Aegean Sea create a gorgeous scene full of romance that attracts honeymooners from all across the globe. In addition to the iconic architecture, many visitors also come here to enjoy the breathtaking sunsets. In the evening, people gather to watch the sunset from a viewing point as the sun slowly sinks into the Aegean Sea. When only a single sliver of sunlight remains, the viewing point erupts into applause as yet another gorgeous sunset comes to an end.

The town of Fira is the capital of Santorini, built on the edge of the volcano on the western part of the island. The walls of the town houses are all painted white and dark blue , blending in with the sky and ocean. The scenery is truly spectacular. Fira is not only a traditional residential settlement, but also a commercial and tourism center of Santorini. It is home to many small hotels and offers convenient transportation to the towns of Oia, Black Beach and Red Beach. It is considered a transit hub for the island.

Virgin Mary Catholic Church

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!
