Santorini is one of the Cyclades islands in the Aegean Sea. It was devastated by a volcanic eruption in the 16th century BC, forever shaping its rugged landscape. The breathtaking cliffs, clearwater beaches made up of black, red and white lava pebbles, and whitewashed cubiform houses towered by rounded windmills and blue-domed churches of its two principal towns, Fira and Oia, make it “The Greece’s Postcard Island“… It’s a photographer’s paradise!
The Santorini’s official name is Thira. Before it was called Santorini, the island was known as Kallístē, meaning “the most beautiful one.”
