In the centre of Caldera is the Christian Orthodox church of Ypapanti. It is worth visiting and you cannot miss it. We all go to Caldera. Admire the Christian Art Santorini in it.

As the church is right on the path take a quick look inside. It has a lot of intricate murals. Interesting to take a look.

Gorgeous cathedral in the heart of Fira. Very rich in detail and decor. Open to the public daily, one can experience the cultural and religious history of the Greek people.

Undoubtedly, the mosaics and other art in this cathedral are lovely, but they are nothing outstanding, particularly regarding Orthodox Christian works. There are more beautiful places to see in Greece. Nevertheless, take a few minutes to check out this church, but make sure that you...More

For a cathedral it is definitely on the small size. This is the first Orthodox cathedral I've been in for many years, but it is beautifully decorated and peaceful.

It's not the easiest place to get to but it's defiantly worth doing. The views are spectacular from the top and the drive up and down
