Oia Castle | Santorini
Updated: Dec 13, 2019
Oia Castle is the ruined medieval castle (former seat of the Argyri family under the Venetians) that serves as a lookout point with a complete 360-degree view. It is also called Fort Londsa.
The existence of the castle dates back to the 15th century, during which the Cyclades were ruled by the Franks. The castle served as an observation point, very well fortified. Today, the castle attracts visitors of Santorini who seek a magical sunset within picturesque surroundings. The ruins, the colors of the island and the sky, the warmth of the people enjoying the sunset all together, create a magnificent scenery.
