Santorini History

Santorini is rightly so one of the most exciting destinations in the world, attracting millions of visitors every year. During ancient times, Santorini was an important cultural center of Greece, and the many different tribes and peoples settling on the island had changed its name many times, from ‘Kallisti’ (the beautiful one) and ‘Stroggyli’ (the round one) to ‘Thira’ and finally ‘Santorini’. The history of the island is closely connected with volcanic activity in the area. In prehistoric times, in the 17th century BC, a violent volcanic eruption occurred, altering the shape and morphology of Santorini forever and creating the impressive natural features that we admire today. Nowadays, the island goes by the name ‘Santorini’, baptised so during the Venetian Rule after the Church of Saint Irene.
