On the northern most tip of the magic island of Santorini lies the traditional settlement of Oia. Built on the cliffside, with a view on the caldera, Oia offers its visitors a sight of incomparable beauty, as the sun sets under the waters of the caldera in colourful pandemonium. Many writers tried to immortalize it by describing this mysterious and enigmatic beauty, without always being able to describe its real majesty, which only the eyes can perceive. Built in conformity with the characteristic architectural style of the Cycladic islands, it consists of small white detached houses, dominated by a still operating three-storey traditional windmill.
