Ekklisia Panagia Platsani, Oia

4.7
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 .

  • The main church of Oia, located directly on a platia in front of the crater rim, is not to be missed if, like all tourists, you stroll along the crater border. Inside there is a large iconostasis, and murals from more recent times can be admired. However, the external impression with the classic blue and white is likely to be even more impressive for most of us.

  • One of the tourist attractions is located in Oia. The church is very old but still well maintained. Not too much to see but pretty good. Do not spend too much time here.

  • I was surprised as I had expected way too many blue domes than what Oia had to offer. Nevertheless, this place looked majestic under the golden sunset.
  • Simply studding - the rooftop restaurant was the perfect choice
