Panagia Theoskepasti Chapel, Imerovigli

#5 of 9 in Things to do in Imerovigli
Church · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Perched on the edge of a cliff under Skaros Rock, Panagia Theoskepasti Chapel remains one of the landmarks of Santorini. Reaching the whitewashed chapel with the dome as blue as the sea bellow may be a bit of a hike, but the views over an impressive underwater caldera and the nearby islands are well worth the effort. Intrepid travelers can keep climbing the steep steps to the top of the rocky promontory and visit the ruins of a 13th-century Byzantine fortress, destroyed in an earthquake in the 19th century. Plan your visit to Panagia Theoskepasti Chapel and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Imerovigli online tour planner.

  • Amazing place with the best sunset on the island. From Oia is just the most famous but from Skaros-rock is the best sunset! Worth the walk until there. Is almost half an hour from Imerovigli. The car goes until the main road. After you should ask where is the path that goes to Skaros. A few people only and all the Aegean sea for you!
