Santorini (Thira) Cyclades islands, 
Aegean Sea

Santorini, officially known as Thira is the

jewel of the Greek Islands.

 

Formed from the remains of a giant volcanic

caldera, the island is believed by some to be

the site of Atlantis.

This legendary city  is thought to have vanished into the sea around 1500 BC

following a catastrophic eruption,

which also wiped out the

Minoan culture on the island of

Kriti (Crete).

 

Today, the capital of Santorini, Fira,

perches romantically on the

edge of the caldera,

overlooking a lagoon where a new volcano,

Nea Kameni emerged in AD 47.

Its last minor eruption occurred in 1950.
