White church in Santorini

The local Cycladic architecture in Santorini is spiced up with white washed houses literally hanging from the cliff. This is not a house but in fact a church.
Many of the churches on Sanatorini and in fact on the islands of the Greek Cyclades have the famous blue dome, so this is a bit of an exception.
Apparently the architecture is influenced by the occupation of the Franks and in particular the Venetians under who’s influence the islands flourished from 12th century.
