In this stunning capture by Pedro Szekely, we see the sun setting over the picturesque town of Oia, Greece. Oia, which is pronounced “EE-ah” and not “OY-ah”, is a small town and former community in the South Aegean on the islands of Thira (Santorini) and Therasia, in the Cyclades, Greece.
Since the 2011 local government reform it has been part of the municipality of Santorini, of which it is a municipal unit. The population was 3376 inhabitants at the 2001 census, and the land area is 19.449 km2. [Source]
