THE BURNT ONE
Formed just 300 years ago, Nea Kameni, or simply “the volcano” as it’s referred to by the locals,
is the Eastern Mediterranean’s youngest volcanic landform. Today it is a protected natural monument and geological park,
monitored closely by scientists and visited daily by dozens of tourists, with the most adventurous climbing the gravel path
to the top of the 130-meter-high crater, where it is possible to complete a full circuit of the rim.
