The Quiz: What Greek island was forever changed by the massive Minoan volcanic eruption?

A Mykonos
B Santorini
C Crete

Santorini is one of most famous of the Greek islands. Officially called Thira, it’s what remains after a cataclysmic volcanic eruption 3,600 years ago. The blast wiped out a thriving and advanced city of Minoans and left behind a giant caldera that filled with seawater—now that caldera is the lagoon to the west of the curving island that we see here.

The correct answer to this quiz is Santorini.
