Almost two kilometres from Fira and to the left lies the well-preserved village of Karterados with picturesque churches, hotels, tennis and football courts. There is a pavement parallel to the main road.
From the centre of the village this road leads to Gialos where one can find colourful tavernas and can move on to Monolithos, a beach with shallow waters, easy for children to swim. Karterados has a quiet black –sand beach that is the closest from Fira.
Karterados has an interesting architecture and the three lovely churches worth visiting. Analipsis in the center of the village has Italian ecclesiastical architecture style but as it transformed in the Cyclades Island and it resembles to the Cathedral of Fira .
The other two Eisodia tis Theotokoy and Aghios Nikolaos are typically Santorinian.
