Emporio was recommended to us to as an example of a well kept Santorinian village. The castle isn't really a castle - more a collection of small quiant houses, and narrow passages. If you like taking photographs, this is for you.

To see how local people lived 50 or 100 years ago. Nothing has changed - curvy clean and narrow streets, white and yellow houses, small front doors, churches and a half-destroyed Venetian tower. Take a break at Vassili's restaurant 'The Old barber' or Vangelli's café...More

Emporio, unlike neighbouring Pirgos, seems relatively unspoilt by mass tourism so you can climb the steep streets to the top of the town without being bothered by souvenir sellers etc.
