The history behind Santorini island
There were many names: from Stroggili to Kallisti or Kallisto, then Thirameni and Rineia, to the classic Thira. Its current name is due to the passing Frankish Crusaders, who left it to Santa Irina and it was transformed into Santorini.
Legend has it that Santorini emerged from the depths of the sea. Signs of life date from the Early Bronze Age, to the middle of the third millennium BC. The most famous prehistoric settlement is the one in the area of Akrotiri, which was buried under ash in the great eruption of the volcano around 1600 BC.
Together with Thirasia and Apsronisi, Santorini are the remnants of the volcanic island of Strongyli. Parts of its volcano are Nea and Palea Kameni, among others. There are many boats that go around the Caldera, giving the visitor the opportunity to see up close the steep cliffs and the contrast of the black earth with the white of the Cyclades.
The tour of the island in land is also full of emotions. The cave houses in the volcanic soil which look like small tiles in the work of art that spreads in Fira, Firostefani, Imerovigli or the touristically prominent Oia, with the legendary sunset. In Fira, do not miss a visit to the museum of Prehistoric Thera, to make a virtual trip through time with a sigh of relief.
And in the minds of most it may be one of the ultimate summer destinations, but Santorini is irresistibly charming and wonderful in the fall as well.
