History

In Prehistoric Times, the 17th century BC, a volcanic eruption is responsible for the shape and morphology of Santorini as well as the impressive natural features that we admire today. During the ancient years, Santorini was an important cultural center of Cyclades and Greece. The different peoples who settled on the island changed its name several times, from Kallisti (the most beautiful) and Stroggili (the circular) to Thira and finally Santorini (after the church of Santa Irene during the Venetian Domination).
