Photos of Santorini, Greece

Site-Map
Santorini is a beautiful Greek Island in the Aegea Sea. Oia is a town on the northwest edge of the island famous for its beautiful sunsets. However, I found that Mykonos provided sunsets as beautiful with a more photogenic foreground. Aside from the beautiful and original Greek white-washed architecture, there is little of a true Greek experience to be had here. Oia is persistenly overcrowded with tourists. And virtually everyone working at the shops, villas, and restaurants are from somewhere other than Greece and stay on the island only during the tourist season. Having said all of this, Santorini is a beautiful island. If your desire is to have beautiful Aegean views of neighboring Greek Isles and relax in the sun, you will love Oia, Santorini, Greece. I did, despite the tourist overcrowding. This page has photos of the Oia cliffside, the Aegean Sea, Greek architecture, white-washed buildings and blue-capped churches, Greek windmills, Santorini sunsets, the St. George Church, and the neighboring fishing village of Ammoudi, and Imerovigli.
