 Located south in the Aegean sea,  part of Cyclades complex Santorini is graced with an otherworldly ambience.  Gazing at the spectacular scenery from the Caldera, which is the Cliffside part of Santorini you can only hold your breath by this enchanting view! Images that stay with you for a lifetime from your holidays in Santorini! The caldera view towns of Santorini are Oia, Imerovigli, Firostefani, Thira which is the capital of the island. Like a drawing you will see hanging from those high cliffs houses, hotels and villas build with the traditional Cycladic architecture. The white cοloured houses and the endless  shade of blue that you can see only in the Aegean sea are a contrast combination tied up perfectly by the natural earthly landscape  created by the eruption of the volcano with impressive rock formations.  The shape of  Santorini from the caldera side looks like a lagoon that encloses four small islands, Palaia Kameni where you can see the crater of the volcano, New Kameni , Aspronisi and Therasia.
One extraordinary element of Santorini that is well known of is the black beaches  because of the lava!
