The ancient buried town of Akrotiri is one of the most significant Minoan settlements from the Bronze Age in the Aegean Sea, destroyed by volcanic ash in the 17th century BC. It has been excavated since 1967, and visitors can now walk in its multi-storied buildings. After several serious earthquakes, the locals were forced to leave the city covered while later by the heap of a volcanic eruption.
