  • Beautiful Catholic church in one of the hills of Santorini. Very welcoming congregation even though it's a simple church. I recommend a visit and maybe even attending mass here.
  • Beautiful beautiful church. Mass Sundays 10am. I attended july 2022. It’s in Greek but very beautiful and a welcoming priest also
