This ancient city was covered in a heap of volcanic ash in the late 17th century B.C., preserving it for present-day archaeologists and interested tourists. The site is so well preserved that it is often referred to as the Pompeii of the Aegean.

There is really nothing worthwhile here to see, only a lot of stones and dust. You can see all there is by looking at the photos posted. Anything worth seeing is in the Thira Archeological Museum. Its certainly not worth 12 Euros.

Wow is all I can say. The degree that all this has been kept safe and secure to sift thru for answers. Is absolutely incredible. The tags that were on each stone, the structure that was built around to maintain the site and it’s history...More
This is what has been discovered of the remains of a city in Thera (aka Santorini) of the same era as the Minoan city of Knossos. The place was decimated by a volcanic eruption, but, interestingly, only the structures and streets are being found -...More
