Church of Saint Sampson the Innkeeper in Pyrgos of Santorini

This is an old church, but the internal and external embellishment of the church dates to 2003. It is one of two churches in Santorini dedicated to Saint Sampson, and one of seven dedicated to the Saint in all of Greece. The church is located near the Elementary School on the eastern side of the village, along a narrow path. It also celebrates on August 27th, when locals bake Phanouropita in honor of Saint Phanourios.
