On the outskirts of Kamari, a narrow porphyry road climbs , with an endless series of switchbacks , up to the 263 meters of the Sellada mountain pass . Up there, on the rocky peak Mesa Vounó , it was founded in 900 BC the city of Ancient Thera . At its foot , near the sea , there is the town of Kamari, with its beautiful waterfront and a wide volcanic sandy beach .
We came back to the road that follows the Caldera and visited Megalochori. It is a small picturesque village with two large pyramidal bell towers that cross the main road; there are many beautiful views .
