Location: Fira   

The Orthodox Metropolitan Church of Santorini, Cyclades: This cathedral sits prominently towards the bottom of the town and and can be seen from a great distance and from many parts of Santorini. The church was built in 1827 and offers an impressive view to the caldera and the volcano of Santorini. In the year 1956 the building was damaged during the catastrophic earthquake but it was soon renovated.

It is a beautiful cathedral with a nice mosaic on the outside and an impressive bell tower. Rolling arches create a peaceful courtyard. Inside the church is adorned with beautiful frescoes made by the local artist Christoforos Asimis.
