There is a saying that there are more churches in Santorini than the days of a year. Whitewashed with blue domes, Santorini's churches represent Byzantine, Greek Orthodox and Catholic religions among others. Many of the churchs are privately owned by large local families and operate once a year on the owner's name day.   This religious festival includes a traditional meal, singing and folk dancing.
