Free entrance. Only small inside so if it is busy with organised boat trips you would have to be patient.

This is a very quiet and beautiful Catholic Cathedral in Santorini. There are very pretty art works and a very reverential environment.

Managed to cram in a visit to this small church near the cable car station before having to return to cruise ship - certainly worth the short walk up. Nice little church, and quite photogenic tool. Recommended.

Anyone coming to Santorini on a cruise ship can easily find the Cathedral right along the walks around the town. You either take a cable car, or ride a donkey up or you can walk. When you get up there, just look for the... More
