The ancient city of Thera

The ruins of the ancient city of Thera are located a few kilometers from Perissa, on a rock 350 meters above sea level. It was occupied by Dorian settlers in the 9th century B.C., before the Ptolemies of Egypt moved in: this is why it is in Doric style, with its remains dating from the Ptolemaic era. The ruins of the 8th-century BC temples and sanctuaries, as well as those of the Agora, gymnasium, theater and sacred enclosure, can be seen here. Although the site is very dilapidated, it is nonetheless spectacular. In addition to its historical importance, the ancient city of Thera also offers a unique cultural experience. Visitors can take part in guided tours to learn more about the history and significance of the various sites. The ancient city of Thera is a must-see for archaeology and history enthusiasts. It's a chance to delve into Santorini's fascinating past and appreciate the timeless beauty of this ancient city.
