According to Lonely Planet, Santorini, Greece “with multicolored cliffs soaring over 300m from a sea-drowned caldera, …rests in the middle of the indigo Aegean, looking like a giant slab of layered cake. The island spoons the vast crater left by one of the biggest volcanic eruptions in history. Smaller islands curl around the fragmented western edge of the caldera, but it is the main island of Thira that will take your breath away with its snow-drift of white Cycladic houses lining the cliff tops and, in places, spilling like icy cornices down the terraced rock. When the sun sets, the reflection on the buildings and the glow of the orange and red in the cliffs can be truly spectacular.”
This picture, from our jigsaw puzzle entitled Around the World: Santorini, Greece, shows beautiful examples of the architecture of the Cyclades which are islands in the Aegean sea south of the mainland of Greece. This area is known for their white-washed cubed houses built into the sides of cliffs and often with azure blue roofs, doors and balconies. For those that love history, this island has so much to offer for those who wish to learn more about Minoan culture and possible links to the legend of the lost island of Atlantis.
