6. The Monastery of Profitis Ilias

The Monastery of Profitis Ilias: on the highest spot of Santorini, on the path starting from the village of Pyrgos leading to Ancient Thera and Emporeio, this medieval monastery epitomizes the clerical history of the island and at the same time offers majestic panoramic views to the entire island.
