You can take a moment to relax and take some pictures to share with your friends and family back home, but don’t take too long; there is more to see.
While on the peak of Prophet Elias, it is worth a visit to see the Greek Christian monastery. The architecture is beautiful and ornate. Your guide will take you around and point out the best places to see in the monastery and the grounds at the peak of Prophet Elias.
Near the mountain is the village of Santorini. You are probably familiar with the beauty of this town, since it is the village most often photographed and featured on the island. This is due to its picturesque views and beautiful architecture.
