Santorini Movie Lara CroftThe dramatic landscape and the beauty of the caldera has made Santorini a privileged location for film shooting.


Every year several production companies examine Santorini as the set for their films. At the following post, we present some movies about the island or partly filmed on Santorini.



Lara Croft: Tomb Raider/Lara Croft: Tomb Raider - The Cradle of Life (2001)

Everyone has watched Angelina Jolie, as Lara Croft, visiting Santorini. We all remember the opening scene with the greek wedding in Santorini.


A member of a rich British aristocratic family, Lara Croft is a "tomb raider" who enjoys collecting ancient artifacts from ruins of temples, cities, etc. worldwide, and does not mind going through death-defying dangers to get them. She is skilled in hand-to-hand combat, weapons training, and foreign languages - and does them all in tight outfits.


Well, the planets of the solar system are going into planetary alignment (Which occurs every 5,000 years), and a secret society called the Illuminati is seeking an ancient talisman that gives its possessor the ability to control time. However, they need a certain clock/key to help them in their search, and they have to find the talisman in one week or wait until the next planetary alignment to find it again.

Lara happens to find that key hidden in a wall of her mansion.

Summer Lovers

Summer Lovers is a 1982 film written and directed by Randal Kleiser, starring Peter Gallagher, Daryl Hannah and Valerie Quennessen, and filmed on location on the island of Santorini, Greece. The original music score is composed by Basil Poledouris.


It was a just a small budget movie released in 1982. At the time the Greek Islands were already popular with young tourists from all over the world, but this silly little movie became a fantastic international commercial for the Greek tourism authority. Twenty six years later the house used for the movie is still here in Oia… now a curiosity shop.


For all of you that first saw the island in this film and have visited as a result or are still dreaming about visiting one day…
