Saint Pagratios

The church of Saint Pagratios was built in honor of the victims of the great earthquake that struck Santorini On July 9, 1956, the day of the feast of Agios Pagrati, a very strong earthquake struck Santorini. The quake was devastating and caused irreparable damage to the island, however the number of victims was small in relation to its size.

The marble slab mentions the names of the victims of all the villages of the island. Agios Pagratios hosts its own festival every year on July 9, on the anniversary of the great earthquake of 1956.
