Santorini, Greece

Fira Roman Catholic Cathedral, Santorini, Greece

Like its Orthodox neighbour, Fira’s Catholic Cathedral was also almost entirely destroyed in the 1956 earthquake. The restored Cathedral was not reopened until 1975. It is a colourful pastel creation with orange and cream walls topped by a lilac blue dome. The stepped clock tower is visible from many parts of the town and is a useful landmark to orient oneself, although it is difficult to get entirely lost in such a small city.
