Sunrise at the other part of Santorini

When the alarm clock went of it took us only minutes to get dressed and hit the road to Faros, the lighthouse at the southern tip of Santorini. And there she is, creeping above the Eastern coastline, illuminating the landscape around the lighthouse. We discover this strange building that thrones on the cliff ... somehow like a misplaced castle from the times of the Maurs occupying Spain. A bizarre and awakening sight. 

We hit the road to Pyrgos where we are greeted by the chants of the priests. It is a holy Sunday...
