Ancient Thera is an ancient city and capital on a ridge of the steep, 360 m high
Messa Vouno mountain in Santorini.
It was named after the mythical ruler of the island, Theras, and was inhabited from the
9th century BC until 726 AD.
The ancient city consisted of a street almost 800 m long and especially wide for its
time extending in a southeastern direction
and containing several imposing buildings. A small cul-de-sac branches off at right
angles and at its termination, high up on the
mountainside, were the headquarters of a garrison stationed in the city. After about 200
meters of street the city expands to cover
an area of about 100 x 100 meters on an exposed plateau high above the rocky coast.
Residential areas are grouped around an Agora
which is across from a theater built into the lower slope. Separated off and facing the
sea at the eastern tip of the plateau is a
small sacred area with temple grounds and public facilities. All buildings are
constructed of the local limestone of the mountain itself.
Wood was rare on the island and seldom used for building.
