You can find Imerovigli by taking the road going towards Oia. It is the next village after Fira & Firostefani on the famous Santorini caldera. Its position at the highest, most central part of the caldera gave it visual command of the whole area.
It also derived importance from its proximity to Skaros Fortress. Imerovigli has views of the volcano, breathtaking sunsets and tranquility. The largest part of Imerovigli was destroyed in the 1956 volcano eruption.
Some of the population perished, while others moved away to the mainland. Imerovigli has since then been restored and is home to some of the most beautiful hotels, villas and traditional cave house settlements on the island.
