Skaros Rock, Imerovigli
(4.7/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
Skaros Rock once housed a castle that protected the 200 Catholic settlers who called the town home. The town of Skaros was the capital of the island of Santorini until multiple earthquakes caused families to leave. Today the site offers views from the lookout over the flat-top rock next to the sea. The Chapel of Agios Ioannis Apokefalistheis stands silent over the abandoned town. The white buildings high on the plateau are often pictured in postcards of Greece, and it's not uncommon to see a wedding party on the hills among the cafe terraces. By using our Imerovigli travel itinerary planner, you can arrange your visit to Skaros Rock and other attractions in Imerovigli.

  • i wore flip flops - wear appropriate shoes, lots of stairs, worth the work. so pretty! bring your camera and some water - make sure everything is easy to carry:) 
  • It's a tiring walk and can be more enduring that you initially believe, but worth the challenge and a gorgeous view. Please wear the appropriate shoes. I'm always shocked how many are in sandals, slip...  more »
  • The way worth it anyway, especially in the evening sun and the sunset. You have a crazy look on the entire caldera. If you walk down to the small chapel a few almost kitschy photographs included. In my opinion the most beautiful place to marvel at the sunset.
