The volcano erupted with such force that 30 cubic km (7 cubic miles) of magma was ejected, so the top of the mountain collapsed and the 8 km wide bay was formed from the sunken crater. It is thought that this eruption also destroyed Knossos, in Crete. The island’s classical name was Thera, and it was not until the thirteenth century that it became known as Santorini, a corruption of Santa Irina, the name off the patron saint of the island. The cliffs are formed of bands of multi-coloured rock and first view of the island, with its sheer cliffs curving around the bay and rising almost 350 m (1,150 ft) from the sea, is breathtaking.
