Atlantis is the most famous mythological city in the world. Hundreds of books, movies and theories are based on this myth.Everything started with Plato’s reference to a lost ideal city, a city with a great and advanced civilization. Plato one of the most famous philosophers in the world, used the story of Atlantis to instill into his students, by way of example, the highest ethical values that would create an ideal society. There is still great debate on what served as its inspiration. Many places in the world have claimed the origin of the city but Santorini and the huge explosion of its volcano in the past is the most possible explanation of the myth.
