Santorini (Thira) Cyclades islands, 
Aegean Sea

Santorini  is the jewel of the Greek Islands.

 

Formed from the remains of a giant volcanic

caldera, the island complex 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).

 

The island complex is made up of the main island of Thira, and the smaller islands of Thirasia, Aspronisi,

Nea Kameni (meaning "New Burn") and

Palea Kameni (meaning "Old Burn").

The latter two islands are new volcanic eruptions in the centre of the caldera.

 

Nea Kameni emerged in AD 47.

Its last minor eruption occurred in 1950.

 

The gallery includes:

Fira, Firostefani, Imerovigli & Skaros,

Pyrgos, Mt. Profiti Ilia, Red Beach, Oia,

Nea Kameni & Palea Kameni (Volcano),

Monolithos and Kamari
