Santorini is the site where one of the most massive historical volcanic eruptions occurred. It was the Minoan eruption 3,600 years ago at the height of the Minoan civilization. The eruption left a large caldera and ash deposits surrounded by hundreds of metres deep water. The eruption may have indirectly led to the collapse of the Minoan civilization on the island of Crete some 110 km (68 mi) to the south due to a gigantic tsunami. Another popular theory is that the Thera eruption is the source of the legend of Atlantis.
