What people say

"The Church of the Three Bells in Fira on Santorini is one of the most famous, photogenic and most photographed Greek Catholic churches on the island. It is also called the Church of the Ascension of the Blessed Virgin Mary. History of the Church of the Three Bells in Fira In the mid-17th century there were two cave churches on the site of the present church. Unfortunately, they were destroyed due to the progressive lowering of the cliff. They were replaced by the church built in 1757. Since then it has been rebuilt several times. It was severely damaged in the earthquake of 1956, but was rebuilt. The church stands in an extremely picturesque location, and its dome and bell tower looking out over the caldera is one of the most photographed objects not only on Santorini, but all over Greece. The solemn indulgence in this church takes place annually on 15 September."
"It's those classic blue and white domes and church bells. This attraction was officially known as The Catholic Church of the Dormition. Easily noticeable if you're walking through Fira "
"The views are absolutely stunning. The structure holding the iconic bells provides a natural frame for views of the Santorini Caldera."
