The Orthodox Cathedral just dominates the landscape in Fira. It is in the midst of the town and you cannot missed it since it is so imposing. We did not go in but I'm sure it was just as beautiful inside.

The Orthodox Cathedral has been beautifully rebuilt at the site of the old one, after the earthquake in 1956. Classical interior with impressive frescoes by famous Santorinian artist Christforos Asimis, magnificent Chandelier. A tranquil place in the otherwise VERY busy center of Fira!

Free entrance. Only small inside so if it is busy with organised boat trips you would have to be patient.
