Meet one of the most important civilizations of the Aegean, covered by the ash of the great volcano eruption in 1600 BC.

  • the ruins of Ancient Thera in Mesa Vounos, near Kamari
  • the ancient settlement in Akrotiri
  • the Gizi Mansion in Fira
  • the Museums (Archaeological, Folklore and Prehistoric Thira) in Fira
