Akrotiri, Santorini Overview

Akrotiri is one of the oldest and most important archaeological sites offering insights into the prehistoric settlement of the town of Akoriti in Santorini. Akoriti is also nicknamed Santorini Pompeii. The entire town is laid down in the settlement with mud houses, historic buildings, stone bathtubs, Minoan toilets, pots, drinking cups, giant storage vessels, and much more.

The ancient city was buried under volcanic ash due to an earthquake and was discovered in an archaeological excavation in 1967. Currently, the settlement has been preserved in a building made of steel and wood framework. From everyday products to furniture, beds and tables have been recreated for preservation. There are defined routes throughout the area with informative written boards.
