Santorini, officially Thira, is an island located in the southern Aegean Sea, about 200 km (120 mi) southeast from Greece's mainland. It is the largest island of a small archipelago which bears the same name and is the remnant of a volcanic caldera.
Santorini is what was left after an enormous volcanic explosion that destroyed the earliest settlements of a formerly single island, and created the current geological caldera, basically a giant central lagoon surrounded by high steep cliffs on three sides.
The major settlements are Fira (Phira), Oia, Emporio, Kamari, Perissa, Imerovigli, Pyrgos, and Therasia
The traditional architecture of Santorini features low-lying cubical houses, made of local stone and whitewashed or lime washed with various volcanic ashes used as colors. The unique characteristic is the common utilization of the hypóskapha: extensions of houses dug sideways or downwards into the surrounding pumice. These rooms are prized because of the high insulation provided by the air-filled pumice, and are used as living quarters of unique coolness in the summer and warmth in the winter, and also as premium storage space for produce and especially for wine cellaring: the Kánava wineries of Santorini
Due to its unique ecology and climate, and especially its volcanic ash soil, Santorini is home to unique and prized produce: cherry tomatoes, white eggplants, 3 exclusive varieties of grapes which granted the island a flourishing wine industry. Santorini and Anafi are the only locations in Europe to feature a hot desert climate
Archeological finds proved that the city used to have a highly developed drainage system and, judging from the fine artwork, its citizens were clearly sophisticated and relatively wealthy people. Akrotiri still keeps well-preserved wall paintings or frescoes
In the last 5 years, the devastating volcanic eruption from 1500 BC has been linked with Plato’s Atlantis through extensive studies of local volcanology, seismology and archeology
