The island 3500 years ago was inhabited by probably the Atlanteans. Who is to confirm? Make your own mind when you see this city, uncovered from Volcanic ashes, preserved frescos, two story houses, complete and sophisticated sewage systems for an era and civilization very organised for their time. Once in a life time visit. What if Atlantis was here?
