Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Location, location, location. Overlooking the Caldera, this Cathedral is beautifully decorated. Free access, clean, well maintained.

    My wife and I walked the path in Oia and came upon the Agios Georgios Church. It was one of the few buildings in Oia not painted white. We took some photos and continued our walk. The church was not open when we were in Oia.

    Well worth it to get an overview of what the island has to offer. Not too long in each place, but gave us an idea of where to go for a day visit

    This church has an interesting history with Catholics and Orthodox Christians fighting over who owned and had control over it for over 150 years! It is beautiful and in a lovely location. There are very old frescoes in the chapel - which they call a temple - and there was a German guide giving a tour when we were there, so we listened in!

    This is one of the largest and most picturesque churches along the Fira-Oia walking trail. It is built on the hillside above the small town of Imerovigli and if you are walking between Fira and Oia, you can’t miss it.
    What you see here is a large, traditional, white-washed church with a bright blue, distinctively studded dome and an imposing bell tower.
    Apparently there is a balcony with panoramic views but we couldn’t see how to get to it. The church looked closed when we were there and we couldn’t see any way to get inside or around to the balcony area.
    In terms of the Fira-Oia walking trail, the church is much closer to the Fira end, near Skaros Rock.

    It took me about 30 min to hike up and 20 to hike down, I'm very unfit.
    Just follow the stony path and fork right when you see the cross.
    The views are spectacular.

    Came to visit the heart and this is a little further down (a matter of metres).

    Lovely view from a quaint church but beware steps are steep and there are steep drops with little protection - not for small children.

    The church is a cute church, similar to other ones in the area (albeit no blue dome).
    The view from the church is pretty - great views of the town and aegean sea.

    St Stylianos is a very distinctive church on the walking path between Fira and Firastefani. As you leave Fira, it’s not far past the Santorini cable cars. The brightly coloured, peachy yellow and sky-blue colours caught our eye.
    Built on the edge of the cliff, it clings to the side of the caldera cliff-top. It is only a quick stop because as far as I could see, it is usually closed. Also you can only see part of it (the some and bell tower) from the path. However what you do see, is photographic enough to make most tourists want to stop and take a photo.
    For those interested in the history, the church is one of the older ones and dates back to at least the 18th century, probably more.
    It was originally a private church, owned by the Delendas family and housed the family tomb. In 1929, it was bequeathed to the Catholic Diocese.
    The church is dedicated to St Stylianos of Paphlagonia (modern-day Turkey). The didn’t recognise the name bit a quick google told me that he was born between the 5th and 6th centuries into a very wealthy family. Drawn to God, he gave away his inheritance and all his world possessions and turned instead to a hermit’s life. He lived alone in prayerful solitariness in a cave in the wilderness. A zealous and devout man, he was said to be able to cure illness and was a great protector of children and orphans.
    NOTE: If you continue on the path towards Firastefani, just a little further on is the iconic church, known as the Three Bells of Fira.

    Our family hung around here for a sunset after we were worried about making it back from Skaros Rock. It is an underrated spot on the island for sunsets so it was not too crowded when we went. A photographer was in the area taking a picture for a lady with a long dress and explained it is his favourite spot on the island because it sits 350 m high which is one of the highest west coast spots to see the sunset on the island.

    The Chapel was closed when we went but we were able to do a quick hike to Skaros Rock from here. If you're planning to go to Skaros Rock make sure you have good shoes. The path to the chapel would need good shoes for some and has limited accessibility so plan accordingly.

    Absolutely fabulous and pretty. Not an easy walk as you have to walk up the hill for about 45 min from Perissa ! Cannot be visited inside.
