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 underestimated the hike with so many people saying how easy it is. It was short, but it was brutally hot with little shade and a steep ascent. Also, I wouldn't say it was very easy to get to the ver...  more »
