Photographer's Note

Akrotiri
A village built on the most irrelevant part of the island about 12 km from Fira to the southwest. The excavations in that area brought up the city of Acropolis, a fortified Venetian castle during the medieval years, which after the occupation Santorini by the Turks was torn down. The remains of the castle are easily visible. There are two old churches in the village, Aghia Triada and Ipapandi tou Sotiros.
