The present municipality of Thera (officially: "Thira", Greek: ) of Therasia and Oia.The municipality of Thera includes an additional 12 local subdivisions on Santorini island: Akrotiri, Emporio, Episkopis Gonia, Exo Gonia, Imerovigli, Karterados, Megalohori, Mesaria, Pyrgos Kallistis, Thera (the seat of the municipality), Vothon, and Vourvoulos. The large island to the east is Thera, with Aspronisi and Therasia making up the rest of the caldera ring, clockwise.It is the largest island of a small, circular archipelago which bears the same name and is the remnant of a volcanic caldera.It forms the southernmost member of the Cyclades group of islands, with an area of approximately 73 km (28 sq mi) and a 2011 census population of 15,550.Thera is built upon a small, non-volcanic basement that represents the former non-volcanic island, which was approximately 9 by 6 km (5.6 by 3.7 mi).The basement rock is primarily composed of metamorphosed limestone and schist, which date from the Alpine Orogeny.In the centre is the larger Nea Kameni and the smaller Palea Kameni. The two main sources of wealth in Santorini are agriculture and tourism.In recent years, Santorini has been voted one of the world's most beautiful islands (2015 Travelers” Choice Awards Reader's Choice Awards, amongst others).
The depth of the caldera, at 400m, makes it impossible for any but the largest ships to anchor anywhere in the protected bay; there is also a fisherman's harbour at Vlychada, on the southwestern coast. The capital, Fira, clings to the top of the cliff looking down on the lagoon.I work full time but I do have some free to spend some of my free time with a nice,naturally good looking woman.
