town is the capital of the island and stands out like a white eagle's-nest,
hanging between sea and sky. The climb from the bay to the town
can be made on foot for those who want to try their strength,
climbing the 680 steps of the road, with the cable car or even
with the good all traditional way the Santorini donkeys. The
population of Fira is 1500 people, which lives in the present but
tries to retain the local traditions of the past.
