Santorini Gem

The Catholic Cathedral of Santorini, Fira, Santorini, Greece

The Greek Island of Santorini is perhaps the most photographed island in the Mediterranean. Most of these photographs feature the beautiful blue domed churches that can be found in the small town of Oia. They indeed stand out to make a beautiful scene to wonder at and to photograph. In fact, it was my main reason for visiting the island. After spending the morning there, we headed to the capital city of the island, Fira. The city is inspiring, as it lies on the edge of the island, towering about 1,300 feet above the sea. The panoramic view is something to see. As we were walking through the city, I spotted the Catholic Church of Santorini, whose dome was not blue like those in Oia. I am glad, as the beautiful architecture of this building would have been lost against the blue sky.
