An island from the bowels of the Earth

Santorini is the only group of islands in which the settlements have not been built at sea level, but at the edges of the inner walls of the Caldera. It is also one of the few places in the world where cave architectural ensembles are preserved on volcanic soil. The Caldera and the whole complex of the islands of Santorini, have been characterized as of special natural beauty. From the 1980s until today, the island has been chosen by thousands of couples from all over the world to get married, or to spend their honeymoon.

It is estimated that every year there are more than 500 ceremonies. Orthodox weddings are usually held in churches overlooking the Caldera such as the Diocese of Fira, Agios Minas, the Church of the Resurrection in Imerovigli, Agios Georgios and Panagia Platsani in Oia. The Catholics choose the Cathedral of Fira.
