After a two-year pause due to the pandemic conditions, the spectacular event “Volcanoes” returned to the island of Santorini.
Using thousands of fireworks, the event “re-enacts” the volcano eruptions.
Organized by the Municipality of Santorini, the Regional Unit of South Aegean and local organizations and bodies, “Volcanoes 2022” offered an unforgettable experience to residents and tourists of Thirasia and Santorini.
The event took place on Nea Kameni, the small uninhabited island within the flooded Santorini caldera on Sunday, September 18, 2022.
Santorini was the site of one of the largest volcanic eruptions in recorded history: the Minoan eruption (sometimes called the Thera eruption), which occurred about 3,600 years ago at the height of the Minoan civilization.
