Santorini

Santorini is a captivating Greek island known for its stunning beauty and unique characteristics. Here are some interesting things about Santorini:

Caldera and Volcanic History:

Santorini is essentially what remains after a massive volcanic eruption around 3,600 years ago. The eruption created a caldera, a large crater-like basin, which is now filled with the deep blue waters of the Aegean Sea.

Whitewashed Architecture:

The iconic image of Santorini is its whitewashed buildings with blue domes, creating a picturesque and postcard-perfect landscape. The architecture is not just aesthetically pleasing but also serves practical purposes like reflecting the sunlight and keeping buildings cool.
