Imerovigli Santorini: Immerovigli is a picturesque village situated at the north of Santorini, only 3.5 km away from the capital of Fira. It is a continuation of Fira and one of the most beautiful balconies of the island, as located on a higher cliff. The name of Imerovigli comes from the word vigla which means "view spot". The position of the village provides a clear view of the caldera and the volcano, and during the old times it allowed villagers to see the pirate ships approaching. Today, Immerovigli is one of the recognized traditional settlements.
