Karterados

The settlement is 2 km south of Fira. The area is considered to have been inhabited since the 17th century, and the original buildings were rock-hewn underground.Lying in a dried-up riverbed, the village was practically invisible.Its name comes from the Greek word karteri (ambush point), possibly because locals ambushed pirates here.The village is divided in two parts: main part and Vounitso. You will be impressed by the old settlement with the carved-in houses.

Karterados lies just 2 km to the south of Fira town and is a village with traditional architecture that leaves the tourists spellbound. In addition to its architectural heritage there are many vineyards in this area, which gives real beauty to the village. The village is built in two dried out rivers and is famous for its elegant whitewashed churches that stand out for their amazing architecture. The rock houses have been dug out of the bed of a torrent and the roofs are on a level with the pavement. At the end of the village there is a road that leads you to the tranquil pebble beach of Exo Gialos and further along to the sandy beach of Monolithos.
