Nice church in the centre of Fira, with the Bishops house nearby, easy to find just look for the clock tower, no particular dress required but would suggest respectable clothes be worn as this is a religious site.

Nice small church in the middle of Fira. Not impressing or outstanding... Nice and cool when it is hot outside.

Lovely church in a superb location. Very comforting inside and no restrictions on dress. Bit of a trek up to the church, lots of steps but worth it.

This is much more inspiring from the outside than inside, but it has suffered 2 earthquakes. It will take you no more than 5 mins of your time and shouldn’t be overlooked.

A beautiful and peaceful church on top of the island. Much better than most of the tourist trap/shops on the island.

This church is on the scenic pathway in Thira. Its easy to find, signs point the way. It's easy to find and it's pretty quick to see. It was nice.

A spiritual oasis set on the lovely hillside above Santorini. Beautiful setting and well worth a brief visit.

Anyone coming to Santorini on a cruise ship can easily find the Cathedral right along the walks around the town. You either take a cable car, or ride a donkey up or you can walk. When you get up there, just look for the... More
