In the village of Akrotiri, you should visit the remains of the Medieval castle, surrounded by some of the old traditional houses. The buildings inside the castle (as in other castelia on the island) were given to private individuals during the exchanges of land.
The owner of the Goulas has restored the impressive building and since the spring of 2012 it hosts an exchibition and workshop about the hand made Greek bagpipe (www.laponta.gr).
In Akrotiri you will also see the churches of Agia Triada, Ypapanti and Agia Theodosia, protector of the castles.
In the village you will find mini market and small taverns. Around and in the settlement are hotels and rooms to let. The beach has restaurants.
Each year festivities take place in the region, two of which on May (on the 12th of St. Epiphanius and on 29th of St. Theodosia) and the most important one on August 15th, in the church of Dormition of Theotokos.
In the summer, there is a bus connection from the village to Fira.
The road to Red beach and the lighthouse is quite good.
