TOUR 13
Sunset in Oia & Traditional villages bus tours


Our first visit will be at the oldest church on the island Panagia Episkopi built during the rule of Byzantine Emperor Alexios Komninos in 11th century AD Next we visit Mesa Gonia – the “ghost” village- that was deserted after the earthquake of 1956 and now it is rarely inhabited. We will walk around and we will take photos of the ruined houses and the old churches. Then we visit the traditional village Pyrgos. We walk around the narrow winding streets, admire the traditional cycladic architecture and the fine old houses; visit the Byzantine churches and the remains of the Venetian castle on the hilltop. On our way to Oia, we stop at the idyllic village Imerovigli.
It is built at the edge of the caldera wall, on a unique location, where you can enjoy the most wonderful view to the caldera. There we also find Skaros - a grand rock- the remnant of the most important castle and capital of Santorini for many centuries that was destroyed by the volcano eruption of 1650 AD. Then we will follow a road with breathtaking view to reach the traditional village Oia. The village is built along the caldera rim. The white washed houses with arches and coloured doors and windows are built inside the cliffs resembling eagle nests.
You will enjoy the astonishing panoramic view of caldera, the volcano, Thirassia island and the rest of Santorini. Oia is famous for being the place of artists gathering, whom works of art have been inspired by the beauty of the landscape and are exhibited in small galleries in the village. Oia is also known for the magnificent purple sunsets. While the sun sinks into the sea, splendid colors spread the sky and serenity fills the heart. You can enjoy a drink in a terrace of a cozy coffee shop looking at caldera and the sky changing colors. Fifteen minutes after the sunset we return to the village square to get on the buses for going back to the points of your departure.
