Ekklisia Panagia Platsani, Oia

4.7
Church · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Experience a traditional Greek Orthodox church at Ekklisia Panagia Platsani. The original church stood at the town's edge, inside the castle; after its destruction in the 1956 earthquake, this building replaced it, constructed on the much more stable town square. Step inside to admire the murals and ornate linings of the building. Don't miss the sacred vessels donated by travelers throughout the centuries, and the icon of the Virgin said to have been found in the sea. Take in the peaceful atmosphere, and then step outside to explore the lively town center. See Ekklisia Panagia Platsani and all Oia has to offer by arranging your trip with our Oia road trip website.

  • Lovely church in the square in the middle of Oia. Not only is it good to see it from a historical context, the square itself is a great place for pictures pre and post Oia sunset.  more »
  • Amazing!!! Both the interior and the sight from right outside, where you find a square and a wonderful terrace on caldera!!!  more »
  • Nice large traditional Orthodox church located at the main square in Oia. Well worth a visit to spend a tranquil moment in this busy village  more »

  • Its a church, so make sure you're quiet and respectful. Sign outside says no shorts allowed but locals are very patient with tourists as long as you are respectful. No photos or recording allowed its a place of worship so makes perfect sense.
  • Great scenic views. Go early or late to avoid crowds. If Cruise ships are in it can be a very busy place. Beautiful, beautiful views.
  • Very nice stay we enjoyed our self to the fullest, amazing view, staff are very supportive. Excellent customer service.
  • The food was top notch. Service was friendly and fast. The view, priceless. Love this place
  • It's a neat looking church. Worth snapping a photo. You'll be sure to see it as you are walking through Oia on the way to lookout point.
