Santorini 2 - Oia
Continuing the pictures of Santorini, these photographs show the astonishing town of Oia on the
northern end of the island. Perched above the lava cliffs, on top of the tiny port of Ammoudi, Oia has
risen from the devastation of the 1956 earthquake to become one of the top attractions, and perhaps
the most photographed place in the Cyclades. Its colourful buildings, shops and restaurants blend with blue
 and white churches, restored windmills, and tourist resorts cut into the brown lava cliff face. And of
course the breathtaking views are legend.
