  • Beautiful small cathedral located in Fira. Has a lovely interior. Currently (May 22) you need to wear masks inside. At nighttime it is lit up beautifully.

  • Great place to visit. The church is absolutely beautiful, I wish I could have taken photos on the inside. There’s also plenty to do, food, shopping, a museum. Absolutely breathtaking
