SANTORINI - PART TWO - SEPTEMBER 2006
"ON THE BEACH - Perivolos is one of the nice beaches in Santorini, and together with Perissa form the longest black-sanded beach on the island. Of course, the sand is not as beautiful as the one you may find in Algarve, but the Aegean Sea is nice enough to keep you busy..."
"CALDERA - Oia, Immerovigli and Fira look amazingly on the top of the cliff around the caldera, but the blue is impressive!"
"CHURCH - Santorini has more than 250 churches for a population of less than 14000 people. The main church at Oia (pronounced [i.a]), located 11 km far from Fira, at the northwest edge of the island, is a beautiful building"
"CHURCH - Another one in Oia"
"OIA is famous for its sunsets. By 6:30 p.m., hordes of people start gathering for the free show..."
"SUNSET - Usually, the diving of the sun into the sea provides the chance for some beautiful pictures"
"THE SHOW IS OVER - The sun went down and the hordes start retiring!"
"COUPLE - There is always a nice person to get a picture"
"WINDMILL - Greek Islands are also famous for their windmills. This one in Oia looks quite nice..."
"OIA - After sunset... Beautiful terraces!"
"CHURCH - This is probably the most photographed church of Santorini, but during the day. The view towards the caldera, behind the church is stunning, but you can't see it at night..."
"THE 1800 RESTAURANT, housed in a mansion that was built in the middle of the 18th century, is a typical captain's house and a «living museum». It offers a roof garden with a magnificent view of the sea and some delicious Mediterranean cuisine. The fish we had was quite nice and the wine perfect"
