Project Description

Santorini, a creation of peeved nature, due to her special history and legends that followed her, the traditional settlements and the vivid cosmic life, has conquered the whole world.

It is the southest island of Cyclades. Literally it’s a complex of islands comprised from Thera, Therasia, Aspronisi, Palea and Nea Kameni. It is an island with long history that has suffered a lot of catastrophes due to volcano eruptions that have changed its shape.

But human power turned to be stronger than rough nature. Today the -almost- lunar scenery with the black, grey and red volcanic rocks has turned into a white state. The mild architecture of Cyclades islands has changed the island’s sight. The graphic villages, with the narrow cobblestone pavements, the small squares and their churches impress every visitor. View to volcano that most tourist resorts have- is spectacular. The picture is unique especially the sunset. Photos of Santorini’s sunset are all around the world. At dawn all visitors run to Caldera to see the reddish sky.

Akrotiri, with the Venetian Castle and the adjacent prehistoric City. In the archaeological site of Akrotiri the visitor sees the ruins of a whole city of the 17-century B.C brought to light by the recent excavations

At the north tip of the island, Oia is more quiet than in Fira, very romantic and artistic, with captains’ mansions, windmills, marble paved narrow streets, nice cafés, restaurants and little shops. During sunset every body finds himself into the small castle in order to admire the colors of the diving sun. Bellow the village of Oia lies the small bay of Ammoudi with fresh fish restaurants

Located at a height of 400 m crowned by the medieval castle (called Kastelli by the locals) and overlooking a big part of the island, Pyrgos makes one of the most elegant villages of the island. Important is the historical monastery of Prophet Elijah.Notably worth visiting is Pyrgos during Easter, when a spectacle of fires and scent on the night of the Epitaph remains an unforgettable experience.

The beach resort of Kamari is situated on the southern part of Santorini, right next to Perissa, with the enormous rock called Mesa Vouno between them.
