santorini akrotiri archaeological

Thanks to the digging up of deep pits for the new cover, it is now possible for us to outline the history of the prehistoric settlementon the southern coast of the island. Established during the Neolithic period (during the 5th millenium B.C.), the small Neolithic village followed the development of the Cycladic civilisation of the 3rd millenium B.C. (proto-Cycladic period) and thanks to the strategic importance of its geographical location the cosmopolitan merchant harbour was built and is today admired by many visitors.
