It hard not to feel like another church, another excursion for some I’m sure. This while understandable for some doesn’t do justice to such a fantastic piece of architecture or the beautiful artworks contained within the building. Yes, you could see similar elsewhere, particularly on...More

This was a beautiful walk up the hill to see this beautiful Cathedral. Nestled on the hilltop and hill side, it is very pretty. Not over bearing just very peaceful. Certainly worth the time

Nice church in the centre of Fira, with the Bishops house nearby, easy to find just look for the clock tower, no particular dress required but would suggest respectable clothes be worn as this is a religious site.

Nice small church in the middle of Fira. Not impressing or outstanding... Nice and cool when it is hot outside.

Lovely church in a superb location. Very comforting inside and no restrictions on dress. Bit of a trek up to the church, lots of steps but worth it.

This is much more inspiring from the outside than inside, but it has suffered 2 earthquakes. It will take you no more than 5 mins of your time and shouldn’t be overlooked.

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
