Santorini, Greece

Santorini is an island in the southern Aegean Sea, about 200 km southeast of Greece's mainland.

 Santorini is essentially what remains after an enormous volcanic eruption that destroyed the earliest settlements on a formerly single island.

Santorini was named by the Latin Empire in the thirteenth century, and is a reference to Saint Irene, from the name of the old cathedral in the village of Perissa - the name Santorini is a contraction of the name Santa Irini.
