Tradition tours in Santorini
Make a traditional exhibition in Santorini with Santorini tours!
Santorini is one of the islands that have held on their rich tradition over the centuries. Today the tradition of Santorini is kept alive in several aspects of everyday life, mainly through traditional products and through festivals.
The historical vineyards of Santorini
Both the local products and the festivals of Santorini maintain an unbroken line of life with the past of the island, both recent and distant. It is a fact that the cultivation and production of wine in Santorini was already known to the inhabitants of the prehistoric settlement of Akrotiri, something that was known to the public from the excavations.
This means that already in 1700 BC in Santorini, people drank the same (naturally) wine that fills the glasses of locals and visitors today. It is even certain that the current vineyard of Santorini is the continuation of that, which was planted on the island after the Minoan eruption of the volcano, around 1200 BC. Therefore it is about 3200 years old!

The traditional products of Santorini
Feta, barley, anhydrous tomato, goat and other products produced by this dry and soiled (and at the same time endowed) land of Santorini, are among the finest and most sophisticated flavors of Greece.
The tradition of most of these crops also starts from prehistoric times, with the famous frescoes of Akrotiri Krokosyclektery demonstrating that in the 17th century BC the Santorinians knew this rare plant and exploited it.
At the feasts of the island, one can still see today how the tradition of centuries is kept alive through the spirit of the people. The music played by local organists with their traditional instruments, the food that is shared by the faithful and has lived for decades, the joy of which small and large people participate, proves that tradition continues unceasingly.
