Built on layers of red ash which created by the explosion of the Volcano, Oia abstains from Fira about 12 kilometers. Her
current name, was given during the decade '30 from the Venetian conquerors. it was used to call "Pano Meria".

 It often is reported as “the Captains' village” because of its powerful naval force during the 18th and 19th century. The
residents used to be over 13.000! The local salesmen exported their well-known wine in Romania, Russia and Egypt.

 The view of Oia lying on the rocks, above the bight "Armeni" and the small port Ammoydi, are the first to see from the ship,
while entering in to the port. The colorful houses, welcome all the visitors.

When first visited, you feel splitted between the volcanic rocks and the vines lyed to the northern of the sea. All around, there is the sense of fairy world...
