If you are in Emborio you should walk from the village to the windmills. You can see the windmills from every village corner. The way to the windmills begans at the village border going from Fira. It is also easy to find walking from the village center towards the West. The windmills are in very bad conditions but in my opinion worth visiting. From there you have a very beautiful view of the southern part of the island and the Caldera. There is a church (Agios Ilias) at the end of the road. I went there to shoot some sunset pictures.
I met a very funny and cute dog there whom I played with.(pic.5) It was so funny that I wanted to adopt him.
