Owner description: Skaros was considered the most important of Santorini's five castle fortresses. The rock was inhabited in medieval times, because the fortress constructed there offered protection from pirates.

“Fantastic! Best attraction!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

When I visited Oia for the sunset it were 1000 people and crowded like hell. I did not get ANY good pictures. From Skaros rock you can enjoy the sunset all by yourself, with the exception of only a few other tourists. Totally the best sunset spot in Santorini.

“A great walk”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

This a headland that is near to Imerovigli, Santorini. It was the site of a Venetian castle in the 13th century. Most of it is has now gone, mainly due to earthquakes, the most recent being in 1957. Views are stunning. Best to wear terrain sandals or trainers, not flip flops. A fair walk down with many steps. Nice time to do this walk is either when the sun is setting or first thing in the morning before the sun rises over the caldera.

“Unusual view of Santorini”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

You can enjoy the walk around the formation, go down and see a remote church or go up and climb to get a fantastic and unusual 360° view of the archipelago of Santorini
