Two picturesque churches next to each other built on the slope of the caldera.
They are located in the west of Oia, south of the main promenade that runs through the city (from the caldera). With characteristic blue domes, they are one of the most photogenic churches in Oia.
The Church of Anastasi was built in 1865, and the church of St. Spirydon – 2 years later, in 1867.
The Church of Spirydon is a typical example of Santorinian religious architecture. It is a white building on a square plan with a blue dome, the belfry located in the south-east corner is also topped with a blue dome.
