Greek Island of Santorini



Santorini is an Island on the Southern Aegean Sea, about 120 miles SouthEast of the mainland of Greece. It is the largest Island of a small, circular of Island Chains. The Island of Santorini was formed after an enormous Volcano erupted, leaving behind high steep cliffs. The main Island slopes downward-towards the Aegean Sea. Santorini got its name from a Latin Empire in the thirteenth century, and is a reference to Saint Irene. Santorini became independent in 1821, during the Greek War of Independence, and was united with Greece in 1830. -R.Stenberg/Publisher@Stonewash Magazine “wikipedia”
