The volcano

The volcano of Santorini is responsible for the islands shape and for its famous caldera.
The eruption of the volcano in 1650 B.C. was one of the largest in the last 10 000 years and it caused the end of the Minoan civilization on the island of Crete.
The most recent eruption at Santorini was in 1950

Volcano and Thirassia

Do spend the day visiting the volcano and Thirassia - by far the most history and beauty of the entire island. Donleys to the little village on Thirassia are only 3euros and a must in the heat.
For swimming in the hot springs make sure you wear an old costume as the sulphur will stain.
