2. This Greek Cave Church, Accessible only by Water
Dedicated to the Holy Seven Sleepers of Ephesus, the church is situated inside a cave at Mouzakia beach near the port of Armeni, Oia… Due to the very small size of the church, the locals remain on their boats as there is no space for all inside the church. After the Divine Liturgy the food of the feast is served by another boat onto their boats.
Being accessible only by the water, the fishermen of the island pass all too often by the beach to stop there and light a candle for their beloved ones. It is one of the most ancestral churches on the island and in old days the faithful locals organized vigilance on the feast day in the cave to commemorate the Saints.
Today, Michael Balopita’s family maintains this unique church and it is a majestic jaunt off the beaten track to experience during your journey in Santorini.
