The History of Santorini

The Santorini island landscape is situated by an enormous volcanic eruption happened about 3,500 years ago. This eruption caused a large tsunami wave, which almost wiped the entire Cretan culture. This wasn’t the last time the volcano has erupted. The volcano is an active one and is being monitored regularly, to prevent any disaster. The last time it did erupt, was in the 1950th, which destroyed the island’s agriculture.
