Santorini villages are realy unique. According to the Greek ministry of Finance the land prices in Oia and Imerovigli (both perched over the caldera cliff and offering the amazing view to the volcano) are the higher in Greece.
Some of the villages remain untouched by the touristic development and what they have in common is the fact that there is not any road crossing the village and the car access is restricted. Such villages are Oia, Imerovigli, Pyrgos, Megalochori and Vothonas. All of them offer a view into the traditional architecture of Santorini in the past.
The island of Santorini is full of beautiful villages with unique beauty, all with different characteristics, with friendly habitants, picturesque squares, whitewashed houses, churches with blue domes, traditional tavernas, cobbled streets and villagers selling traditional products on the streets. Tourists fill their streets every day, visiting the local shops, buying souvenirs, tasting the Santorinian dishes and drinking the local wines for which the island is famous for. Leaving Santorini without visiting villages such as Imerovigli, Oia, Pyrgos, Fira, Firostefani, Amoudi, Megalochori and Kamari would be such a waste.
Santorini is a picturesque Greek island that looks just as beautiful in person as it does in the photographs. Not only that, but it is an island that seems to be cut from another time. Perhaps the island really did house the Lost City of Atlantis. Whether that’s true or not doesn’t seem to matter while you’re here, the island has a charm all its own. Nowhere is this idea more true than in its villages, and each village offers visitors a unique experience.
