Skaros is the former capital of Santorini up until the 18th century
when villagers moved to Fira Town to gain easier access to the
sea. In the 19th century Fira took over as the capital, but Skaros
has remained a superb tourist attraction to anyone willing to
climb down the several hundred steps and take the 15 minute walk
to the monastery overlooking the caldera basin.
