Elounda, Plaka, Spinalonga island

Spinalonga is a small island which closes from the north the bay of Elounda in the Province of Mirabello in the prefecture of Lassithi, Crete. It was fortified excellently by the Venetians both in terms of construction and architecture and in terms of aesthetics of the whole landscape that still retains its beauty.

From 1903 it operated as a leprosarium while in 1957 it closed lepers with the use of antibiotics.

After 1957 it remained unused for several decades and after the interest of numerous tourists began the systematic restoration and repair of old buildings, fortified Venetian walls, old houses, roads, etc.

Today thousands of visitors visit every year this beautiful island with boats that start every hour from Agios Nikolaos, Elounda and Plaka which is located directly opposite the mainland and is about 800 meters.
