From Fira we take the road to Perissa and after 10 kilometers we turn left to Akrotiri. 14.5 kilometers before the beach is the entrance of the archaeological site. The excavations in the cape began in 1967 by the archaeologist Spyros Marinatos to verify the theory that the destruction of the Minoan civilization was the eruption of the volcano in Santorini. The result of the excavations was to find a Minoan city. Apart from the verification of the above theory the results from the excavations allowed the archaeologists to reach to the following conclusions:

  • Before the eruption of the volcano many earthquakes took place and the inhabitants had plenty of time to abandon their houses.
  • Maybe there had been a period of peace, with no earthquakes, something that must have convinced the inhabitants to return.
  • The period between the earthquakes and the eruption must have been a year.
  • There was a community living in Akrotiri, which was governed by a clergy class.
  • Nature and fertility were objects of worship.
  • Every house had a special worshiping place but there were no temples.
  • The art of the inhabitants of Akrotiri had many things in common with the art of the Minoan era.
Area of excavations: it's a unique place. Most of the areas are monuments. They are something to be admired for their beauty, grandeur and technique. Akrotiri: a civilization buried in ashes.
