Venetian Castle in Santorini

The Venetian Castle of Santorini: The village of Akrotiri is one of the most interesting archeological sites in Santorini. In the year 1967 Professor Spiros Marinatos and his dedicated team of archaeologists conducted a great excavation that brought to light the vestiges of a fabulous city with a highly evolved civilization.

Large quantities of artifacts including frescoes, paintings, ancient utensils, clay, and metal objects have been discovered at the excavated site of Akrotiri while there is evidence that in the medieval era Akrotiri used to be a military bastion or fortress of Santorini. Once the Ottoman Turks captured Santorini, the impregnable Venetian Castle of Akrotiri was completely damaged by the Turks. Today all that remains are the vestiges and remnants of the castle.
