Let’s start, first visiting the village Oia. This unique village is the second most famous town on Santorini and, for many, its most beautiful spot. Oia is a traditional settlement of Santorini. It is also called Apano Meria or Anomeria (the upper side) and the inhabitants of Apanomerites. It is located in the north part of the island.
