Imerovigli, Santorini Greece

Situated 3 klm of Fira at the Northwest, Imerovigli is a typically Cycladic settlement, with traditional low, white washed houses with terraces, narrow pebble paved streets and numerous tiny churches found in every quartier. This settlement of 460 permanent residents has been declared preservable.

Built at the rim of the volcanic crater, 300 m. high, it has an extraordinary view to the caldera, fully justifying its name (in greek "imerovigli" means "day watch") and its fame as "the balcony of the Aegean".

The castle of Skaros is worthseeing. Never defeated during the more than 350 years of the Venetian domination, the castle is located at a strategic point, watching all the western part of the Aegean. It is in this castle that the Venetian dominant Marco Sanudo and his aristocracy (catholic bishops and military officers) were lodged.

Imerovigli is ideal for walking and taking photos. Either you choose to walk along the public road, or you prefer the old path at the edge of the rim, the view is outstanding, the landscape marvellous and the nature always surprising. Spring and autumn are ideal for staying at Imerovigli, but it is also a good alternative for summer for those who would like to avoid the crowd and noise of Fira.

Full facilities of lodging, eating and amusement are offered to the visitors who choose to stay in the village.

Access to the village is possible by public bus, taxi, private or rented car, but, being so close to Fira, walking is also a very good alternative.
