  • When we visited Santorini, we stopped here while we were visiting the church and the castle. It's a rugged building like a fortress, with a view of the azure sea over a Santorini-like building.

  • The village Emporio, is located only 12 kms from Fira and yet not big world in its alleys. It has long been the shopping center of the island of Santorini. Today Emporio is one of the largest villages on the island. Stop, it is definitely worth a visit, walking around the bend of its castle, its alleys, its green houses that denote with the traditional blue... We took a real pleasure to visit this beautiful village, it remains before Megalochori, my favorite of Santorini
