The Mediterranean region has always been known as a “hot spot” for volcanic and tectonic activity. Italy and Greece, especially, have centuries of detailed histories of eruptions and earthquakes. Most of the truly dramatic events occurred thousands of years ago. The effects of the devastating natural events can still be seen today. One such example is the Minoan Caldera, more commonly referred to as the Santorini Volcano located on the island of Santorini in Greece (36.4200° N, 25.4317° E).
At the present, Santorini is a very popular tourist destination among the Greek islands. It is frequented by tourists wanting to experience Greek culture as well as the breathtaking beauty of the island chain’s landscapes. These beautiful landscapes were created through violent volcanic activity. The most famous volcanic activity to occur also happens to be one of the largest known volcanic eruptions in the past few millennia. It was this eruption that caused this shield volcano to collapse forming the caldera we see today. Santorini lies in an area where a northward subduction of the African plate with the European plate is occurring. This subduction is what causes the area to be so geologically unstable
