Fira – Greek Orthodox Cathedral

The Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Fira is actually quite modern, it was only built-in the late 1950’s after the earthquake in 1956 destroyed the previous early 19th Century building. Having said that it is much more grand than the Roman Catholic one I posted about last time and is by far the largest and most impressive building in Fira:
