Ancient Thera
After the Minoan civilization of Akrotiri was wiped out by a massive volcanic eruption, Spartans came to settle here. The ruins of where they lived and worshipped are called "Ancient Thera" and are a short drive and a strenuous walk from the coastal village of Kamari. While not as photogenic as the ruins on Delos or some other sites in Greece, there's a haunting feeling here—older locals swear they've seen the god Pan lurking about.
