Fira, the island's capital and largest settlement, is the island's commercial and cultural center.

On foot, it takes approximately 10 minutes to get there.
Imerovigli is a picturesque village located in Santorini's central west region, only 3.5 kilometers from Fira.
It is a continuation of Fira geographically and is regarded as one of the most magnificent balconies of the Aegean because to its location above a cliff that provides a breathtaking view of the Aegean Sea, the caldera, and the volcano.
Indeed, the name "Imerovigli" derives from the word “vigla”, which means "viewpoint," as this site once permitted residents to watch approaching pirate ships.
Imerovigli is one of the most popular destinations in Santorini these days, and the town is an authentic representation of Cycladic architecture, with tiny lanes, whitewashed houses perched on the cliff edge, romantic sunsets, and amazing secret sites to find.
In terms of sightseeing, the most prominent attraction in this area is Skaros, a massive rock formation located directly in front of Imerovigli. The road to Skaros Rock is considered to be one of the best hiking trails in Santorini, as it is relatively straightforward to follow.
Skaros Rock's ruins are all that remain of a 13th-century castle that was abandoned in the 18th century and collapsed due to an earthquake.
Additionally, Imerovigli's several chapels (Agios Ioannis, Agios Georgios, and Theoskepasti) are worth visiting for their exquisite architecture. The Anastaseos church, located in the village center, is one of Santorini's famed, blue-domed churches.
