Welcome to Imerovigli!!!
The village of Imerovigli, also known as “The balcony to the Aegean”, is built on the highest point of the caldera cliffs, about 300 meters above sea level.
It is situated at the north part of the island, 3km from the capital of Fira. Its position provides a magnificent view of the famous volcano and the Aegean Sea.
One of the most important sightseeing of the village is the famous rock called Skaros that lies on the seaward side. It is of paramount importance since it was one of the five fortresses of Santorini and the most significant one.
It was once an observation post providing security from pirates. Today one can admire the remains left after the earthquake of 1817 and, of course, a striking view from the top.
There are numerous churches and chapels in Imerovigli, among them the prominent church of Panagia Malteza and the chapel of Panagia Theoskepasti, built on the cliff edge in front of Skaros offering a unique panaromic view of the caldera.
Imerovigli is an ideal choice for a private, romantic holiday filled with tranquillity. It forms an impressive scenery of whitewashed houses, flowers and cobblestone alleys. You can wander through the peaceful, paved paths away from the hustle and the bustle. It promises priceless, relaxing moments and a view you cannot resist. Here you can unwind in the traditional taverns, restaurants and cafes with lovely terraces.
