The ancient island of Santorini constitutes a wonderland of rich culture and history, with nature unique to its island. According to Greek mythology, the island was created from a chunk of earth thrown into the sea by Euphemus, son of Poseidon.
Santorini (originally named Thira) is the aftermath of an enormous volcanic eruption that destroyed the first settlements of once a single island and created the geological Caldera that now lies in the Aegean Sea.
