View Point for Golden Sunsets, Oia, Greece
The Castle of Oia is the most famous place for the sunset sightseeing! It is said that the best sunset view of Santorini can be seen from the Castle. Most of the visitors gather to the Castle area before the sunset preparing their cameras or embracing their beloved persons and gaze to the west waiting for the sun to start curving towards the sea.
Then, the sky seems to have been painted with various colors like yellow and orange which turn to pink and then purple as it gets dark and the sun becomes a small glittering dot in the very point where these colors meet each other, get mixed and turn to white! The scenery is incredible… Sometimes, the steam from the sea makes the atmosphere slightly dim as if wrapping it with a diaphanous veil.
Everybody is trying to enjoy every single moment of that spectacular natural phenomenon during which the colors have their own party! Most of the spectators are trying to capture as much as possible of it in order to keep the remembrance alive for ever. However, no picture can transfer the majesty of the original sunset of Santorini.
