About Santorini

Next to the Parthenon in Athens, the famous blue church domes on Santorini Island are instantly recognizable. Set high above the blue waters of the Aegean Sea, Santorini is a timeless wonder. The cliffs drop down some 300 m, making the towns and buildings seem precariously perched close to the sheer edge. A central lagoon formed when the volcanic caldera collapsed in a massive eruption some 3600 years ago. Today Santorini is a renowned tourist destination. Quaint villages and Mediterranean architecture make for stunning photos. The sunsets are incredible and temperatures remain pleasant even in the high summer months. Well-connected to the rest of Greece, Santorini is a near paradise on Earth and should be on any traveler’s bucket list.

The Virgin Mary Catholic Church and accompanying Three Bells of Fira are much-photographed landmarks in Fira on Santorini Island. A famous location for wedding photos, the church features an immaculate white facade and beautiful blue domes. The current structure was built in 1757, and refurbished and expanded multiple times over the centuries. The contrast between the white buildings and the blue waters surrounding Santorini is unforgettable. The church is set high on volcanic cliffs and almost seems to float aloft. The spectacular scenery makes for amazing photos!
