Dominican Convent in Santorini
Santorini Dominican Convent: The Dominican convent is ideally located in the predominantly Catholic quarters of Fira, the capital of the island of Santorini, right at the town center. The Convent hosts twelve nuns of different nationalities. It is a much-venerated convent for people belonging to the Christian faith. Inside the Convent, there is a church, the Rozario Church, which is conspicuous by its marvelous traditional architectural brilliance.
The church's baroque features have attracted the attention of historians and archaeologists. In fact, a visit to this magnificent Convent offers a fascinating insight into the high degree of craftsmanship that prevailed in Santorini in the medieval times. There is a street that meanders through the Convent and if you are lucky, you can hear the nuns singing Vespers.
