Love the ART of Santorini Architecture  Santorini is a place with unique architecture “… following the general architectural lines and rules of building construction in the Aegean Sea. The island’s particularities are used in order to create an environment with unusual freedom in building construction. Τhe soil singularity allows on the one hand the existence of underground buildings and on the other hand the land cultivation and construction of buildings, which are closely coexisted so that one cannot distinguish with certainty the borders of each property…” (M. Danezis, 1939).
