Ekklisia Panagia Platsani, Oia

4.5
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 .

  • It was one of the main seats of the list that I wanted to visit. The Church is open to individual clocks, so for example my stay it was only available with 6-9 in the morning. Rules for visiting: closed form robes closed neckline, shoulders and knees. Taking pictures around the duhovnos orthodoxy prohibited, I recall:) Inside reigns umirovtvorenie. All churches provided free of charge to light a candle. Just as there is a belief that one can take seed and put in a purse to increase prosperity:)

Where to stay in Oia

Oia boasts arguably the most unusual lodgings in the Cyclades, offering rooms in cave-like houses carved into Santorini's dramatic cliff faces. Converted into boutique hotels, these dwellings provide airy rooms with good natural ventilation, allowing them to remain cool throughout the island's hot summers. The western side of Oia offers the best sunset views, but you must book months in advance to stay there. The less crowded eastern side offers comfortable lodgings in reasonably priced apartments with private balconies and free Wi-Fi.
