Churches around the island...



It is said that there are 365 churches in Santorini, so you can visit one each day for a whole year!
The churches are usually private, built by the captains after they had returned from a journey. 
 Their domes are mainly blue, symbolizing the sky and the sea, making people feel closer to sky and God.
The white color of the building symbolizes purity and is considered ecological, as it reflects the sun rays more than any other color.
 That’s why it is used in almost all the Cyclades.
