Santorini is an island in the southern Aegean Sea. At the beginning all of this zone was a one big island, but after huge volcanic eruption (about 3600 years ago) it become one of many little islands. The eruption left a large caldera (Santorini lies on one of the most forceful volcanic centre in this region) surrounded by volcanic ash. One of the popular theory holds that this natural cataclysm is the source of the legend of Atlantis. This story and many marvelous monuments (ordinaly Minoan culture) such as huts in Akrotiri (with lots of ceramic pottery, wall painting and frescos). The ruins are very good preserved. Santorini isn’t only ancient history. A lot of interesting buildings were build in medieval times (Byzantine Empire – mainly churches). The traditional architecture is presented by low-lying cubical buildigs, which are made from local raw materials (a lot of them has a characteristic blue domical roofs).
