General description: Sunset Point

The Castle of Oia, located in Oia on Santorini, Greece, is the most popular place for sunset sightseeing on the island. Therefore, it is commonly known as the 'Sunset Point'. It is located on a pinnacle point of the town.

The castle was built by the Venetians and inhabited by Dargenta family until 1577. It used to be the mightiest and most beautiful residence of Santorini. However, in 1956 most of it was destroyed by the earthquake.

Nowadays, the ruins of the Castle of Oia serve as a lookout point with a complete 360-degree view. The 'Sunset Point' gets crowded each evening, just before the sunset. Visitors fill the point with their cameras, trying to embrace this beautiful moment while being a part of a wonderful natural spectacle. The 'Sunset Point' is the perfect place for couples, wanting to spend a magic and romantic evening in amazing setting.
