~ Imerovigli ~

~ by katherine & anastasios ~

Imerovigli is a traditional village and it is the extension of Fira but is situated on a higher cliff .
The name comes from the word "vigla" which means "day" .
In front of the village is located an enormous rock called Skaros .
Until 1800 , Skaros was part of the land and had a castle on it where all the administrative offices of the island were located .
The village was almost totally destroyed with the earthquake of 1956 , and the cliff-edge houses were abandoned but a tourist trade started up again in the 1970s .
Today Imerovigli is a beautiful and quiet village and also one of the top areas in Greece for accommodation !
