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.

  • It worth the hike there. You need to climb to get to the top. The view compensate you. Amazing views to the volcano and the caldera. Also do not forget to go to the small church at the back of Skaros  more »
  • But its almost impossible to get on top without risking your life. You have to climb into an old construction and you need help.  more »
