Church and Bell Tower, Pyrgos, Santorini by 


Traditional bell tower and Church dome towering over the village of Pyrgos, Santorini, Greece.
The architecture of Santorini is predominantly low lying cubical houses made of local stone and whitewashed or limewashed with various volcanic ashes used as colours. Many houses have rooms carved into the rock which helps with insulation in both summer and winter. Santorini is the largest island of the circular archipeligo which bears its name and is a remnant of a volcanic caldera which erupted some 3,600 years ago. Greek Islands.
There are many churches in the villages on Santorini as originally each family home had its own chapel.
