Oia: geometric joy

Oia, in size the second city of Santorini and popular for its unique setting, its architectural charm and its sunsets.

While standing on the Byzantine castle ruins, I was mesmerized by the verticalism and the strong geometric quality of Oia’s churches and the urbanization of the steep edge of the Caldeira.

An overview of Oia shot from the Caldeira while aboard the ‘Blue Star Naxos’ is in the workshop here. A picture made 5 years ago by TE member Suppiluliuma shows this scene from above: here.

This is for now the last picture of the Cycladic travelogue.
