Panagia Katefiani

Location: Perissa   

The church of Panagia Katefiani in Santorini: At a high altitude of 200 meters on the slopes of Mesa Vouno Mountain, on the southeast coast of Santorini lies the beautiful tiny chapel of Panagia Katefiani. This small church, built on a huge rock, was used in the past as a refuge for the locals in times of war and pirate attack.

Set in a fabulous location overlooking Perissa and the south coastline of Santorini, the chapel provides a breathtaking view to the Aegean Sea. Behind the chancel, there is a small cave with an ancient fountain whose water is believed to have therapeutic effects. Panagia Katefiani celebrates on September 8th, the day of Virgin Mary's birthday. It is located on the way from Perissa to Ancient Thira.
