Emporio is an inland village of Santorini
. It is located in the south part of the island, close to the long black beaches of Perissa
and Agios Georgios
Emporio is an old village and has a traditional area with preserved architecture, narrow alleys, white churches and a medieval castle (kastro). Take some time to spend for a walk here and you can see how the island looked like many years ago, before modern construction. The permanent inhabitants are over 3 000 persons so this is the largest settlement of Santorini and the cafes, restaurants, bakeries and shops work all year round. The beach of Vlychada
is also close to Emporio, 3-4 km away from the village center.
