Photographer's Note

Although Fira (also spelt as 'Thera') is a bit of a tourist trap, with watches, jewelry, postcards, trendy clothing / sunglasses, and tacky souvenirs etc for sale, it does have some notable sites if you're prepared to look for them. This is the Orthodox Metropolitan Cathedral near the main bus station. I've added a workshop showing another impressive Catholic Basilica in the eastern part of town. In the fg is the ubiquitous oleander tree with pink flowers. It also comes in red and white colors.
