Santorini is a small, circular archipelago of volcanic islands located in the southern Aegean Sea. It lies 200 km southeast from Greece's mainland. It is also known as Thera or Thira, forming the southernmost member of the Cyclades group of islands.
Santorini is essentially what remains of an enormous volcanic
explosion, destroying the earliest settlements on what was formerly a
single island, and leading to the creation of the current geological
caldera.The volcano is still active, and the last eruption was in
1950, causing an earthquake that destroyed many villages on the
Its spectacular physical beauty, along with a dynamic nightlife, have made the island one of Europe's tourist hotspots.
