Thira Naval Maritime Museum
The Thira Naval Maritime Museum collects artifacts of the once-thriving merchant seamen of the island and recounts the history of how they made the hilltop town of Oia so prosperous. For a closer look at how these merchant seamen lived (hint: They did pretty well for themselves!), also check out the neoclassical Oia Mansion Hotel, a sea captain's home constructed around 1870 and a building of significant cultural heritage.
