Create an itinerary including Panagia Theoskepasti Chapel
Perched on the edge of a cliff under Skaros Rock, Panagia Theoskepasti Chapel remains one of the landmarks of Santorini. Reaching the whitewashed chapel with the dome as blue as the sea bellow may be a bit of a hike, but the views over an impressive underwater caldera and the nearby islands are well worth the effort. Intrepid travelers can keep climbing the steep steps to the top of the rocky promontory and visit the ruins of a 13th-century Byzantine fortress, destroyed in an earthquake in the 19th century.

  • Really pretty blue church with excellent view! The way here was rocky and full of stones so I do recommend if you want to come here you should wear sneakers or hiking shoes but not sandals. It’s about 30 minutes walk following the trail. Good place to check in a sunny day.
  • One of the best sunset view in Santorini.
