Create an itinerary including Ekklisia Panagia Platsani
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.

  • Located in the centre of Oia in a small square, the church looks spectacular and is a good site for some quick photos. There isn't much to it, but it is worth a quick look.

  • We spent three days in Oia, and walked past several times, but we never found it open. It does look nice from the outside though.

  • Nice church little church, at least from the outside. I tried to enter but the doors were locked. The place is full of tourists.
  • Beautiful church and fun surrounding area with lots of shopping and dining. Watch out for the beggars in the area, most are isolated to this square and few other places in Oia.
