~ Oia ~

~ by katherine & anastasios ~

Oia ( or Pano Meria , Apanomeria ) , facing south in a fishbone layout .
The main pedestrian street connects its ends across the top of the cliff , with many local branches .
The village was also , devastated by the 1956 earthquake and has never fully recovered , but it is dramatic , stricking and quieter than tourist-frenzied Fira , although it's streets are also filled with expensive jewellery boutiques .
Oia is famous for its imaginary sunset and its narrow passage ways get crowded in the evenings .
The most popular spot to watch sunset is by the Kastro walls .
The central square , Nikolaou Nomikou , skirts the caldera .
The town hosts a cultural centre , Greek art galleries as well as the usual handicrafts , souvenir and jewellery shops .
As seen on a zillion postcards , the characteristic classic view of Oia , is the bright white and blue of the church contrasting with the deep blue of the Aegean sea in the background .
Oia , is beautiful , exquisite small town and an ideal place for those seeking peace and quiet .
Houses , paths , churches built up skillfully on the northern part of the island .
All the forementioned exists in combination with the best golden sunset in the world .
Oia has also a great marine tradition and you shouldn't miss the Oia maritime museum .
