Imerovigli, crossed by narrow, paved paths, is really charming with its houses built amphitheatrically around the caldera. It has all the charm of some of the larger places on the island but without the crowds.

One of the things that makes this village so striking is the dramatic scenery. Make sure to focus your eye on the massive rock face that can be seen from the shore. That’s Skaros rock and the village itself looks like it was carved right out of the rock.

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 and traditional cave house settlements on the island.
