About Santorini

About
Santorini

Santorini is an island favored from nature, characterized by its fertile volcanic soil, its history that starts in the prehistoric age, and its strategical position in the South Aegean. The Minoan and Cycladic Civilizations that once thrived in this land for thousands of years, have left behind traces of an extraordinary culture with invaluable artworks found in various forms of art. The island is now considered as one of the top destinations in the world, due to its history, its contemporary culture, and its plethora of traditional settlements, castles and churches. Another very distinctive feature of Santorini is its architecture, subject of studies of great architects such as Le Corbusier, characterized by the unique doming/arched roofs of the buildings that are constructed under the ground on the edge of the Caldera cliffs.

Museums and art spaces present rare works of art, drawn up from archaeological excavations such as Akrotiri and Ancient Thira, marking out the multicultural character of Santorini. Today, Music Festivals, Exhibitions and Art Galleries, add to the island's great cultural tradition and sculpt a new aspect in the field of contemporary art.
