The Local Community of Vothonas includes the settlement of Vothonas as well as Agia Paraskevi and belongs to the Municipality of Thira. According to the 2011 census, it has 756 residents. Located 3.3 kilometers southeast of Fira, Vothonas is one of the island’s oldest settlements, judging from reports from the 18th century AD. Here we will find the most numerous and most characteristic cave houses on the island. The settlement was built on both sides of a gorge which now runs through the village as a narrow central road. Several mansions were built in the settlement in the late 19th century, when it was flourishing.
