Methana, Santorini, and Nisyros are the main active volcanoes in the Hellenic arc, and Santorini has been the most popular throughout history. The Santorini volcano is famous for it's eruption in 1640 B.C. that killed off the Minoan population inhabiting the island. Santorini has had active eruptions up until the 1950's and now seems to be laying dormant.
