Payment - Peace of mind
The village of Vothonas is 6 Km away from Fira and is among the most picturesque villages of Santorini. It is not overcrowded as most tourist places might be. Here you will find peace and harmony, two elements that are rare in our modern era.
Vothonas village is a village carved out of rocks. Most of the houses have been dug out of the streams.
A leisurely walk along the principal street leaves you mesmerized with the astuteness and creativity of the village craftsmen, who knew how to protect their houses from violent storms.
Vothonas is famous for its architecture, which is unique in Santorini. There you will see a lot of beautiful facades of villas that have impressive doorways and pilasters that blend perfectly with the general white domed shaped houses that are a characteristic of the island.
The church of Saint Anna make your visit to Vothonas complete. It is was build in 1827 and is the oldest church of the village. An interesting part of the church is the intricately carved wooden panel, which is engraved with scenes from the Old Testament. You should try the Panagia trypa on the edge of the high cliff.
