Create an itinerary including Skaros Rock
Skaros Rock once housed a castle that protected the 200 Catholic settlers who called the town home. The town of Skaros was the capital of the island of Santorini until multiple earthquakes caused families to leave. Today the site offers views from the lookout over the flat-top rock next to the sea. The Chapel of Agios Ioannis Apokefalistheis stands silent over the abandoned town. The white buildings high on the plateau are often pictured in postcards of Greece, and it's not uncommon to see a wedding party on the hills among the cafe terraces.

  • If you're living in Imerovigli a trip to Skaros Rock is a must! Just look out for yourself - there's regularly falling rocks.

  • This walk will take your breath away, walking down, around and back up again …… but not as much as the scenery and the surprise around the backside of the Rock. Enjoy.

  • Worth visiting place if you want to see the beauty of natural in Santorini. The wind might be cold if it’s a cloudy day. In spring all the flowers blooms along the trail and you can find the great sea view from the cliff here including the famous volcano at the other side of the sea.
  • Screw this effing rock and it's beautiful views. 5 stars. Bring EXTRA water. Worth the walk but you might not be alive after.
