Signature Whitewashed Structures of Santorini Greece

If you’re going to talk to people about Greece, many would tell you that they dream of seeing Santorini, which has been hailed many times as one of the world’s most stunning places. This Cyclade island in the Aegean Sea suffered from a major devastation after a volcanic eruption sometime in the 16th century. But this natural disaster helped in the formation of its rugged landscapes.

Some of its most notable features are the whitewashed cubist houses in its primary town of Oia and Fira that are perched on cliffs above an underwater crater. The beaches you’ll find here are not of white sand but are of white, black and red pebbles.
