Vourvoulos

The village of Vourvoulos is located approximately 4km away from Fira on the road towards the island’s northern beaches. The village is built amphitheatrically with a view of the plain in the north-eastern side of the island, as well as to the beaches of Koloumbo and Pori. In Kato Vourvoulos you will find the central square with the imposing church of Agios Efstratios that celebrates its feast day on December 13th. At the same place, you will also see a monument in honor of the people that died during the German occupation. It is also worth visiting the beautiful church of Agios Panteleimonas.
