Imerovigli

The village of Imerovigli is perched on the highest spot of the caldera with amazing views to the sea and the volcano. An irresistible destination all- day long and ideal for sunset time.

Is also known as “The balcony to the Aegean”, is built on the highest point of the caldera cliffs, about 300 meters above sea level. It is situated at the north part of the island, 3 kilometers from the capital of Fira. Its position provides a magnificent view of the famous volcano, the sparkling Aegean Sea and the sunset that is out of this world.
The notable attraction of the village is the famous, immense rock called Skaros that lies on the seaward side. It is of paramount importance since it was one of the five fortresses of Santorini and the most significant one. It was once an observation post providing security from pirates. Today one can admire the remains left after the earthquake of 1817 and, of course, a striking view from the top. In Skaros, the symbol of Santorini, you can experience hiking as well.
There are numerous churches and chapels in Imerovigli, among them the prominent church of Panagia Malteza and the chapel of Panagia Theoskepasti, built on the cliff edge in front of Skaros offering a unique panaromic view of the caldera. Furthermore, you can visit the female monastery of Agios Nikolaos, situated between the villages of Imerovigli and Firostefani, which hosts a folklore museum and an ecclesiastical museum with rare Byzantine icons.
