These buildings are built into the cliff face.
Looking back on the Zuiderdam - our ship - which is anchored in the middle of the Caldera which was formed after a massive volcanic erruption centuries ago. At the top of the cliff looking down on the town of Fira.
And the narrow street swarming with tourists!
Across to the other part of the island with the airport.
A lovely view of the Caldera and the volcano.
Back on board the ship this is a view of Fira and the donkey track you can ride up.
The cliffs further around - you can clearly see the strata formed by various earthquakes. This is the site of a former mine for pumice which is no longer permitted.Sailing away and looking back at Santorini nestling behind the volcano.
