Greek courses in Santorini

Santorini, a volcanic Greek island, is located in the Aegean Sea. The current shape of the island is the result of a tectonic activity that took place around 1600 BC. Then the huge volcanic eruption caused a partial collapse of the island and the creation of a so-called caldera of a diameter of about 10 km. (a huge crescent-shaped cliff). This event is connected by some with the sinking of the legendary Atlantis. It was then that the island had a developed civilization (Minoan culture), which left it just before the volcanic eruption. After this disaster, the island was uninhabited for almost 500 years.
