Firá is the capital the island Santorini, Greece.
It is a traditional settlement. “Firá”, actually, is just a mispronunciation of the ancient name -“Thíra”, past name of Santorini island. Most of the houses in Firá are painted bright white, this creates an amazing contrast together with brown mountain & the blue sky & sea in the horizon. Firá is a great place for photographers (photographers who are whiling to spend a significant amount of euros for a can of coke…) The town is located on a steep cliff above the sea. The location is just one of the reasons why it’s so beautiful here. Architecture is the second reason. The narrow, stone-paved alleys of the town are surrounded with white houses topped with blue domes, the best example of the typical architecture of the Cyclades Islands.
