The volcanic caldera in the middle of the Santorini is perhaps the island's most defining feature, forming a naturally stunning backdrop for small displays that are found along the cliffside path. Here, a hotel has placed a potted cactus at its entrance. These cacti have fruit that turns bright red when ripe, often known as a prickley pear. It is unwise to touch the fruit (or the cacti!) with bare hands as the tiny thorns are very efficient at embedding themselves in unprotected skin and are challenging to remove. The fruit is quite pleasant to eat, though!
