The Minoan Eruption | An Awe-Inspiring History that dates back in 1610 BC
Santorini is an outcome of a dreadful event that occurred in 1.610 BC. We are referring to the Minoan Eruption that ravaged the then-called Thera, and resulted to much of the island's shape to be destroyed and submerged underwater. More than 40,000 people were killed throughout the Aegean while the eruption provoked a huge tsunami that hit the nearby island of Crete.
The volcano is still considered to be active up to today, however, 1.610BC was the last time that showed signs of activity.
