Archaeological Site of Akrotiri

In the southwestern part of the island of Santorini stands the archaeological site of Akrotiri. In the '60s it was discovered the remains of an ancient settlement, destroyed by the eruption of the volcano. Today the archaeological excavations are well preserved and tell of a rich and highly developed civilization. As has happened in Pompeii, it is due to the volcano ashes if they come down to us not only buildings, but also frescoes, pottery and other precious artifacts.
