What makes Santorini and its group of islands so unique is that the only vocano in the wold having its Calera (crater) into the sea. Following one of the gratest volcanic explosions ever recorded around 1630 BC this island volcano was reshaped, part of its crater collapsed into the sea creating the most breathtaking landscape of crater side cliffs ever seen. The top of the caldera on the cliff side has been built by carving out “caves houses” (yposkafa) into the mountain. The houses offer the most extraordinary view of the caldera and the sea from above.
Cave houses are also naturally climatished cool in the summer and insulated from cold in the winter.
