On the northwestern part of Kimolos, west of the “Sklavos” height, there is a huge stone mushroom, which the people of the island call “Skiadi”. A natural monument that lies in the middle of a barren plateau with excellent view: overlooking the southwestern and western coasts of the island (Ellinika, Mavrospilia, Athinia) and a large part of Milos.
Greek-based OPA (open platform for architecture) has conceptualized the ‘Chapel of the Holy Cross’, a religious building that translates symbolism, tradition and belief into space with a materiality based on the simplicity and harmony of contemporary architecture.
Proposed for the island of Serifos in Greece, it possesses a single cliff façade that faces the Aegean sea, positioning the view to the sea. The ‘Chapel of the Holy Cross’ is a complete, evocative study of aesthetics, structure, function and engineering enhanced by tradition waiting for realization.

If you visit Santorini (Σαντορίνη) and want a different beach experience you should definitely visit Red Beach (Κόκκινη Άμμος) in Akrotiri. Contrast colors are its main characteristics. The bright turquoise of the sea and the red volcanic cliff next to each other bring wonderful and breathtaking views. We believe that this beach is the most impressive beach in Santorini.
