The result was, apart from the entire destruction of the settlements of the island and the burring of a great civilization under tones of lava, was the creation of an imposing scenery, the caldera cliff, which stand there even today causing the admiration of any human who stairs at it breathless!
Locals took advantage of the high cliff of the caldera in order to build their new settlements on the top of it. At least, they would be protected against invaders… Nowadays, there is no reason to get afraid of pirates or other attackers yet these settlements are still there offering an excellent view to the caldera. Oia, is one of these villages built on the steep cliff and at the same time it is very famous for its magnificent view which creates a romantic ambience, especially during the sunset time. This is why Oia is also famous for its sunset view.
