The trek through Oia, particularly on a day when lots of cruise ships are anchored at Santorini, can be daunting because of the crowds. But try to make it to the end of the main shopping street and then up to the citadel for photo taking. You won't be disappointed. There isn't much more than a tower and some foundations remaining, but the views are splendid!

There wasn't a lot to see at the Byzantine Castle ruins, but the views from the top of the ruins are spectacular. There were some really good photo ops on the walk up to the castle and definitely good photo ops once you get there. It was definitely worth the walk up, if for nothing else just to get some exercise and enjoy the views.

The views are great. It does get crowded at sunset.
