~ by katherine & anastasios ~

The island of Thirasia close to Santorini .
The island of Thirasia is located in close proximity to Santorini and , in fact , it was once a part of it .
The volcanic eruption that happened at around 1500 B.C. broke Santorini into many pieces and Thirasia emerged as one of those .
Thirasia is today a virgin island , still untouched by tourism and modern life style .
The island of Thirasia is only 9 sq. km is size and has only one hundred and fifty permanent inhabitants .
Manolas village is the capital of Thirasia .
Other settlements include Korfos , Riva and Potamos .
Manolas has small , picturesque houses painted in various colours .
The virgin beaches and the pure nature are the main attractions of Thirasia .
A walk through villages can also be a wonderful experience , as in front of the houses there are big gardens with colourful blossoms .
From Manolas , you can trek to the monastery of the Assumption of The Virgin .
Apart from this monastery , there are other 20 churches on Thirasia .
Each year , on September 21st , there is a feast to honor Virgin Mary .
Other places to visit there are some hot springs .
There are quite a few places to stay on Thirasia .
However , the food in the local taverns is very nice and authentic Greek cuisine can be tasted in the taverns and cafes .
In summer , daily boat trips are organized between Santorini and Thirasia .
