Santorini is the southernmost island in the Cyclades. Its official name is Thira (Thera in classical Greek).

This island is the site of one of the largest volcano eruptions in recorded history. About 3,600 years ago the volcano erupted, causing an enormous tsunami which hit the island of Crete, leading to the eventual downfall of the Minoan civilization. Now, Santorini is a waterfilled crescent, the remains of this ancient volcano.

 Thira is a beautiful Greek island. Santorini is the southernmost of the major Cyclades islands in the Aegean Sea, the closest one to Crete. This is one of the most-visited Greek islands, for good reason. Unfortunately for many people, it is just a brief stop on an all-inclusive cruise. You should visit the island on your own, it’s easy to do.

Thera or really Θηρα is the Greek name. The name Santorini dates from its Italian language name, “Saint Irene”, as the island was seized by the Venetians in the 1200s AD after the Fourth Crusade had sacked Constantinople and overthrown the declining Byzantine Empire.

Earthquakes and pirates ravaged the island through the 1400s. The population in 1470 was just 300. In 1479 a group of forty destitute families sought refuge on Crete.
