Main crater - top view.
At the centre of the Santorini caldera is the small volcanic island
of Nea Kameni (Young Burnt Island) which formed around 425 years
ago, although some of the lava rock is less than 50 years old.
Hot springs form around the edges of the volcano that are rich
sources of reduced iron and manganese, and tourist boats visit
the volcano on a daily basis that can be caught from Fira Town,
Athinios Port, and Oia.
