Santorini Skyline Panoramic Picture, Greece

SKU: SANT1
This panoramic photograph of Santorini was taken by James Blakeway. Santorini is a volcanic island of southeast Greece. It's located in the southern Cyclades Islands north of Crete in the Aegean Sea. The island is a favorite of tourists due to its sunny weather, picturesque seaside villages, and remains of ancient Minoan settlements. The island experienced a cataclysmic volcanic eruption around 1600 B.C. that demolished the center of the original island and created a 500-foot tsunami that devastated the north coast of Crete, 45 miles away. This eruption is popularly regarded as the most likely source for Plato's parable of Atlantis.

Santorini, Greece Skyline Pictures

As a volcanic island 120 miles southeast of Greece's mainland, Santorini skyline pictures show the beautiful architecture of one of the most recognizable locations in the Mediterranean area.

Formerly a single island, the geography seen in Santorini pictures is from the famous Minoan eruption 3,600 years ago, leaving a large caldera surrounded by volcanic ash. The massive lagoon in the center of the island is surrounded by cliffs nearing a thousand feet high, on which the iconic buildings in Santorini panoramic pictures are perched. While Santorini photos show a peaceful and idyllic landscape, the region continues to be the most volcanic area in the South Aegean Volcanic Arc.

When looking at Santorini skyline panoramas, it's immediately apparent how this picturesque city has been a favorite of tourists for thousands of years. With its winding narrow walkways and streets thanks to the buildings' unique arrangement along the cliffs of the caldera, the architecture in Santorini pictures are among the most unique in the world. The stark white and blue-trimmed buildings in Santorini photos make a striking image with views across a blue lagoon mirrored by often clear skies. When traveling to the Mediterranean, a stop in this beautiful city is not to be missed by any who have enjoyed the experience of viewing a Santorini skyline picture.
