Photographer's Note

Pictured here is the Catholic church of Fira dedicated to Saint John, the Baptist.
This cathedral of Santorini is in great contrast to many of its Byzantine neighbours. The peach exterior and its size makes it stand out from afar. There is also a wonderfully ornate clock tower standing proudly overlooking the town. The interior is beautifully decorated with large religious portraits framed with pillars. The dome from the interior is lilac blue and other parts are colored orange and cream. The church was greatly damaged by the earthquake in 1956 but it was renovated back in 1975.
