Crescent shaped Santorini is a world’s unique phenomenon. Its morphology was consisted early in the 17th century b.c, when an enormous volcano eruption left the island with 3 parts of land, Caldera, Nea Kameni and Thirasia. Over the centuries, Santorini flourished and was reborn, just to end up destroyed and abandoned again. After different inhabitants and cultures passed by, finally, in 1830 Santorini was attached to the new established state of Greece. During those times the island’s greatest assets have been its local products and shipping. After the world wars and another catastrophic earthquake Santorini was once again abandoned until the late 70s when the island entered the global map as a cosmopolitan destination, a character that still retains until now.
