Santorini Emporio Village
Emporio Santorini: Emporio is the largest settlement of Santorini located 12 km from Fira on the foothills of Mount Prophet Elias. The village itself has a strong medieval character and most of the houses have been well-preserved. At the entrance of the village stand two lovely, blue domed Cycladic churches with impressive bell tower that dominate Emporio.
Half way up the village is a 15th century fortress which looks as though it will slide down the hill at any moment. To the east of the town you will see the market and some nice hotels leading down down to the well-known Perissa beach.
