SANTORINI TOURS: Megaro Gyzi, housing the samename Cultural Center, is one of the few 17th century family mansions to have survived the earthquake of 1956. It was founded in 1980 with the initiative and financial funding of the Catholic Diocese of Santorini. Come to this quiet escape in the town’s north to take in fascinating photographs of Fira before and immediately after the 1956 earthquake, along with a collection of maps, engravings, paintings and 15th-century manuscripts.
