Imerovigli PDF Print E-mail
Image Imerovigli is a traditional village and it is the extension of Fira but is situated on a higher cliff.  The name comes from the word "vigla" which means "day".   In front of the village is located an enormous rock called Skaros.  Until 1800, Skaros was part of the land and had a castle on it  where all the administrative offices of the island were resided there. The village was almost totally destroyed in the earthquake of 1956, and the cliff-edge houses were abandoned but  a tourist trade started up again in the 1970s. Today, is a beautiful and quiet village and also  one of the most expensive areas in Greece for accommodation!
