This photo was taken from the small northernmost historic town of Oia that is quite famous for it's white walled buildings and blue domed churches. The cliffs of Santorini are nearly 1000 feet high and are actually the remnants of a volcanic crater that is believed to have exploded violently at approximately 1500 BC. This massive eruption is thought to have wiped out the Minoan civilation on the nearby island of Crete. The eruption seems to have inspired certain Greek myths and it has been speculated that the Minoan eruption and the destruction of the city at Akrotiri provided the basis for or otherwise inspired Plato's story of Atlantis. If you go to Santorini (Σαντορίνη) or look it up on line you will become very familiar with these three domes over looking the caldera. Kalitha and I waited around Oia all day for what many believe to be the most beautiful sunset in the world, and some how managed to get this spot all to ourselves.
