Santorini, Greece

Santorini is an island in the southern Aegean Sea, about 120 miles
southeast of Greece's mainland. The island is the site of one of the
largest volcanic eruptions in recorded history: the Minoan eruption which
occurred some 3,600 years ago at the height of the Minoan civilization.
The eruption left a large caldera surrounded by volcanic ash
deposits hundreds of meters deep.
