In Imerovigli, as in the whole of Santorini, there are many churches and chapels. The chapel of Theoskepasti is one of the most interesting, it is built on the edge of Skaros rock. Another interesting church is the Panagia of Malta, which took its name, according to tradition from a picture found in the sea near Malta, on a trip from Santorini to Malta for the transport of wine. The captain of the ship, pushed by the dreams of the Virgin Mary, took the picture from the sea and brought it to Imerovigli, where the church was built. The wooden icon screen has scenes from the Old Testament. The original church was built in the 19th century, but was destroyed by the earthquake of 1956 and a new temple was built in the area.
