Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist Reviews
Bella la chiesa e la liturgia. Molto accoglienti i celebranti, capaci di dare un riferimento ai partecipanti in un'atmosfera ecumenica. more »The church and the liturgy are beautiful. Very welcoming are the celebrants, able to give a reference to the participants in an ecumenical atmosphere.
サントリーニといえば白とブルーの教会が頭に浮かびますが、こちらはベージュ系で、フィラの街を散策しているときに偶然たどり着きました。 more »Speaking of Santorini, the white and blue church comes to mind, but this one is beige and I happened to arrive while strolling around the city of Fira.
Such paradise amongst the Madding crowds of cruise ship clients So peaceful and strangely uplifting even if you're not Catholic. Surprisingly fee free entramce though it needs donations for the upkeep which you can do via the lighting of candles, which entices you to offer a prayer or two. Respect needs to be given as it is holy a.d you're obliged to remove head gear and be quiet, the only rules
This place is located in the busy area but still quite and peaceful. It's very unique cathedral as the rest of church in Santorini are Blue and white.
