Thera (Santorini): Scenic Views

Steven Dutch, Professor Emeritus, Natural and Applied Sciences, University of Wisconsin - Green Bay

Because no geologist gets into Valhalla without seeing this.

Location map of Thera. Thera can refer to the whole caldera, the main town, and the largest island. "Santorini" comes from the former cathedral of Saint Irene, and was applied when the Venetians controlled the Aegean.

Topographic map of Thera.

No particular order, just scenic views.
After several efforts, I have been unable to find the celebrated view with many blue domes. I suspect it's only visible from a rooftop somewhere.
