Are you planning a vacation in Greece?

Besides relaxing on the beach and swimming in the pleasant seawater, you can visit various attractions. For instance, the Prophet Elias Monastery is a few kilometers from the village of Pyrgos Kallistis on the island of Thira. Built-in 1712, it is one of the oldest monasteries on the island. A winding road leads to it, passing through rocks with stunning natural landscapes and vineyards. Despite significant damage from the 1956 earthquake, the monastery remains a popular tourist destination.
