In the crystal blue waters of the Mediterranean lies the island of Santorini. Known as the Black Pearl of the Aegean Sea, this Grecian island is home to the iconic whitewash buildings with blue roofed churches nestled along the northern side of the island’s cliffs. This island is an archipelago and the cities sit atop what is known as the caldera. A caldera is essentially a giant crater created by a volcanic eruption of some kind that shifts the surrounding land.
