Fira is the capital of the island since the 19th century when it was moved from Pyrgos. It is situated on the edge of a 260m cliff and offers a great view of the volcano. It is full of whitewashed houses and stepped streets, blue domed churches and sun-bathed verandas. In 1956 a large part of the town was destroyed because of the earthquake and only few of the 18th century buildings were saved. It is a very important village and tourists flood it every summer. It is full of expensive jewellery and souvenir selling shops, clubs, cafes and restaurants. On these narrow streets you will often notice artists from all over the world offering to create your portrait, street singers and instrument players. Theotokopoulou Square is the main square of Fira, the meeting point of all the locals.
