The church of Panaghia Episkopi dating back to 1100 is one of the older and most interesting of the island. Being an orthodoxe church, it has been turned to catholic during the Venetian domination; orthodoxes have taken it back during the Ottoman domination. At the interior one can admire the sculpted decoration as well as the old byzantine icons, some of them going back to the 11th and 12 th centuries.

The church dedicated to Virgin Mary and a great local feast takes place on the 15th of August with folk music and dance; food and wine are offered to the people participating to the feast.

Don't miss to visit the Canava Roussos, a family winery established in 1836, at the entrance of the village. You may taste various types of wines produced there, see the place and buy products. Some small taverns offering thypical dishes of Santorini are available in the Village, but there are no logding facilities.

Access to the village is easy by the buses running to Kamari, which run regularly and very frequently in summer. Rented or private car is also an alternative.
