Santorini Island, Greece, spring 2019: the hermitage on Mesa Vouno

Little seems to be known about the old hermitage on Mesa Vouno on Santorini, although it once must have been a sizeable complex with many different construction units providing shelter, food and water for at least a number of hermits. It was connected to the site of Ancient Thera on top of Mesa Vouno via a paved trail and probably remained inhabited for a much longer time.
By now, only few ruins remain including a former kitchen in a cave, a number of roofed cells for living and a chapel for praying. Several fields must have existed to provide vegetables and many large cisterns, both using natural caves and built at the side of the rocks can be found as well.
