Trip Planner: Europe / Greece / South Aegean / Cyclades / Santorini / Oia / Ekklisia Panagia Platsani
Experience a traditional Greek Orthodox church at Ekklisia Panagia Platsani. The original church stood at the town's edge, inside the castle; after its destruction in the 1956 earthquake, this building replaced it, constructed on the much more stable town square. Step inside to admire the murals and ornate linings of the building. Don't miss the sacred vessels donated by travelers throughout the centuries, and the icon of the Virgin said to have been found in the sea. Take in the peaceful atmosphere, and then step outside to explore the lively town center. See Ekklisia Panagia Platsani and all Oia has to offer by arranging your trip with our Oia road trip website .

Very beautiful Greek church as we love them!
Crkva Panagie je zaštitni znak Ije. Do nje se stiže veoma lako iz pravca autobuske stanice gde je i glavni parking. Ispred crkve je veliki plato koji je uvek bez obzira na doba dana krcat turistima.

In front of the church is a large plateau that is always no matter the time of day to the tourists. The plateau leaves the main street through IA: If you go to the left you will need 15 minutes to reach the second church at the end of the U S, and if you take the right side in 10 minutes to the fortress with beautiful views of the IA and Amudi Bay. The church is free for visitors, but it is strictly forbidden to photograph. The church has beautiful icons and iconostasis that can be prayed in peace. You can also work with a candle by leaving a voluntary attachment. It's very admirable when you see strangers in her who respect this shrine.
Its a church, so make sure you're quiet and respectful. Sign outside says no shorts allowed but locals are very patient with tourists as long as you are respectful. No photos or recording allowed its a place of worship so makes perfect sense.
Great scenic views. Go early or late to avoid crowds. If Cruise ships are in it can be a very busy place. Beautiful, beautiful views.
