Attractions and villages on Santorini
The island’s scenery is one of the top attractions and it’s thanks to it is a volcanic island.
Santorini was once a much larger island, but when the volcano erupted and the land collapsed, many parts of the larger island became submerged leaving a small archipelago of islands surrounding a huge lagoon, known as a cladera.
This happened about 3,600 years ago. Some legends purport that the resulting tsunami is what caused Atlantis to disappear under the water.
The central lagoon is quite beautiful and the dramatic cliffs of Santorini are spectacular.
