Santorini Civilization: Information about the Civilization of Santorini Greece

Tradition and development:

A new era began for the island but closely connected with the past. The character of this development was given by tourism. Initially some foreigners bought ruins and restored them.

The inhabitants realized that if they develop the island it could get them economical power. In the gray background of the ruins appeared restored houses, which were then multiplied, and the color of blue and white dominated in the island.

Later all kinds of transportation multiplied and the inhabitants imitated the other islands and created rent rooms. Today the main occupation of the inhabitants is tourism and the cultivation of some other products as flour, potatoes, oil and meat.

Manners and customs:
The western element influenced the culture of the island. During Christmas, they make the same kind of sweet as in England: pudding. They also make nioki, which is Italian. Many festivities and events take place in August. Even the songs of Santorini are indicative of the identity of the island.
Inhabitants and occupations:
In order to understand the occupation of the inhabitants, you should have in mind that all villages are far away from the sea. Fira is half an hour from the beach. Tourists built today's islands and most of the inhabitants are fishermen. The inhabitants of Santorini used to live on the top of the island and most of them are farmers. The land is fertile and the most important products are grapes and tomatoes. Also, Santorini produces excellent wine.

Most of the inhabitants lived in houses, which were dug in the ground. If you look the island from afar you will realize that it looks like it is composed of volumes of earth that rise from the sea.

In the other side of the island there is some kind of compact white sand. It is composed of dust and ashes and can be easily dug.
