Thirassia Island
Thirassia, although exactly opposite the Santorini caldera, is a complete contrast from Santorini. Quiet and undeveloped, it is almost untouched by tourism. The island of Thirassia comes under the jurisdiction of the Community of Oia.
Narrow pathways, colourfully painted blue, yellow and green bell towers and houses, as well as flowers that have been planted everywhere.
Manolas the capital is on the caldera opposite Santorini. There is a pathway from Manolas up to the monastery of Koimiseos from which you can see the whole island.
Potamos village is built beside a ravine. Most of the homes are cave house style, built into the rock. Agrilia is the largest and oldest village, a picturesque village with cave houses and wine canavas.
