Agios Nikolaos Church is one of the most visited attractions of Santorini as it offers spiritual as well as historic interest. Located between the villages of Firostefani and Imerovigli in Santorini, this structure is actually a female monastery that was founded somewhere in December 6th in 1651. The construction of this monastery was patronized by a few Orthodox families who lived inside the Venetian Castle of Skaros as they wanted to convert their private chapel into something grand. Inside, there is a folklore and an ecclesiastical museum that exhibits rare Byzantine icons. History and culture seekers would love to visit this church.
