The Prophet Elias Monastery sits at the highest point of Santorini – about 565 metres above sea level – so you can see almost the entire archipelago from its balconies and walkways. Despite the outstanding view offered , this spot is still generally quiet at sunset, probably because all the facilities are long-closed by that time. Built around 1711, the monastery was once very wealthy and powerful. Its influence may have waned, and the beautiful Cycladic buildings may have been damaged by the 1956 earthquake, but they still house some remarkable frescos, rare religious artefacts and ancient Byzantine sculptures.
