Ancient Thera in Santorini was an ancient city that was located in the south-eastern part of the island on a rocky mountain called Mesa Vouno, over 360 meters above sea level. Currently, this place is adjacent to two very popular towns on the opposite sides of the mountain – Kamari and Perissa.
The funicular in Fira on Santorini is an alternative way to get to the old port – the other way is to go on foot (or on a donkey) up and down the long and steep stairs (the elevation here is over 200 m). Passengers of large cruise ships are frequent users of the railway.
On the eastern slope of Profitis Ilias there is a small cave and a church called Zoodchos Pigi. A steep staircase leads to it from Kamari, running along a rock wall used as a climbing area. Inside the cave there are nice dripstone formations and a drinking water source.
