Finikia village

The tranquil village of Finikia is located on the north part of Santorini, 10 kilometers northwest of the capital Fira, very close to Oia settlement. The village stands out for the colorful buildings that remind a painting and compose an incredible setting. It overlooks green vineyards and the neighboring islands. From Finikia you can explore the appealing beaches of the northeast coast, like Baxedes and Paradisos.

The architecture of the traditional houses will transfer you to a past era but many houses have been beautifully restored as well. Contrary to the architecture of Oia, where the houses are built on the caldera owing a wild beauty, the houses in Finikia are in harmony and consist of delightful yards, stairs and interesting facades. As you enter the village there is an impressive, big stone wall made of black volcanic rocks. You can relish these wonderful images as you walk around the quaint stone flagged alleys. In the village you can find some traditional taverns with local dishes and cozy hotels, villas, studios and apartments for your stay.

There are many chapels on the vineyards. The church of Agia Matrona, which was built in 1859, is the greatest attraction of Finikia and from its yard you can gaze an unforgettable view. This remarkable church of ocher color has a wondrous bell tower and the tall palm tree that adorns its yard is its hallmark. Finikia is a small, quiet settlement with picturesque streets and buildings and only a few minutes away from the breathtaking Oia village, two destinations that will amaze you to the utmost.
