It is worthseeing the Byzantine church of Aghia Irini (St. Irene), the patron saint of the island, from whom it has taken its actual name, as St Irene died on the island, while in exile. The church of Panaghia Katefiani, dedicated to Holy Mary, is another interesting church, dug in the rock with a magnificent view to the sea. The Monastery of Timios Stavros (Holy Cross), built at the beach, has an impressive church of 19th century.

If you are interested in archaeological sites, don't miss to visit the ruins of Ancient Thira on Mesa Vouno, at a height of 300 m. The excavations have revealed part of the dorian city: sanctuaries, a doric temple of Dionysos, the forum, the theater and the gymnasium, all dating back to the periods between 4th and 1st centuries B.C. From Perissa you will reach Ancient Thira only on foot, an hour walk.
