SANTORINI VILLAGES EPISKOPI GONIAS

EPISKOPI GONIAS
The village suffered greatly during the 1956 earthquake and many of its residents abandoned it to settle in the village of Kamari. However the village has made a comeback of late and is worth visiting for its traditional architecture. Nearby is the village of Exo Gonia from were one can visit the famous church of Panagia Episkopi.

A Byzantine style church dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary was built in the end of the 11th century with all expenses paid by the Byzantine emperor Alexios Komninos. It is located about six kilometres from Fira near Kamari.

Nearby is the village of Exo Gonia, a small settlement built on the side of a mountain and featuring the church of Aghios Charalambos from where you can see the entire island. The church is adorned with wall-paintings by Christoforos Assimis.
