    Finally heard something besides the wind - church bells were pealing just before 7 a.m. cam time. A little early for those who like to sleep in on a Sunday morning. LOL

    I love the way the buildings on Santorini seem to grow organically out of the cliffs. The architecture is so beautiful and blends in perfectly with its surroundings.

    If anybody likes walking I can thoroughly recommend the path from Fira to Oia, excellent views.
    Honestly your camera will never stop in Santorini especially in this area.

    We've stayed in a hotel at Imerovigli which isn't far from here and although there was 100 steps up to the path from our converted cave it was well worth it. I just love this island.

Santorini - Firostefani Settlement

The town of Ancient Thira, was built on the hill Mesa Vuno and founded by the Dorian colonists during the 8th century B.C.., it domains the southeast coast of the Island of Thira and, since its foundation and until the end of antiquity, was the civil, administrative and religious center of the city state of Thira.

Firostefani is the old village north from Fira characterized by traditional villages, the view of the capital city, the sea and the volcano. Its name means 'Crown of Fira' due to the altitude of the location in relation to the rest Fira.

Caldera is called the territorial cavity formed when the part of a volcanic cone recedes; the most characteristic Caldera in Greece is the one of Santorini Island which was formed around 1613 B.C. due to the Minoan eruption that took place.

The outline of the Caldera of Santorini is formed from the Islands of Santorini, Aspronisi and Therasia. The diameter of the Caldera of Santorini reaches 16 Km which classifies it as the largest Caldera on Earth.

The Villa Ilias Hotel is situated in one of the best locations of the island. From an altitude of 300 m anyone can admire the Caldera, the volcano and the unique and amazing sunset.
