Fira(Thira)

Fira is the capital town of Santorini, situated on the west side of the island. It has a population of approximately 1,600 inhabitants, perched on the edge of a cliff, at a height of 260m. From there, the view of the volcano is more than just impressive. After the earthquake of 1956, a part of the town was destroyed. The whole of Fira follows the typical Cycladic architecture with small white houses and narrow paved streets. Many of the buildings were constructed during the period of the Venetian invasion. Especially during peak season, the central streets of the town are crowed with all kinds of shops, such as jewelleries, cafeterias, tavernas and nightclubs. The main square is called Plateia Theotokopoulou and is where all the locals meet. Fira, has also a port which today is only used for cruise boats. From here, visitors can take a tour to the volcano of Nea and Palia Kameni.
