Описание

Visit the oldest Byzantine church of the island, built in 1115, from the ruins of a 6th century church. Its interior is decorated with wall-paintings and it is consided to be one of the most historical monuments. Mesa Gonia village is the next stop which is considered to be the center of Santorinian wine production. Mesa Gonia, is the only village that wasn’t restored since the great earthquake of 1956, and this will give you a unique opportunity to see how was life there before this dramatic event.

Next, discover Pyrgos village, one of the most picturesque villages of the island. Pyrgos used to be the capital of Santorini, now you will have the chance to visit Skaros (the ruins of the medieval capital), stroll around the village and take pictures of its beautiful churches, and enjoy a magnificent view of the island, once you reach the top of the village. Last stop, is Oia village, located at the western part of the island with the most famous sunset and an architecture that reminds that Oia was once a thriving village built from captains and sailors.
