In 1575 the Venetians constructed there a most impressive fortress, which was later converted into a colony for the lepers.

We have left Elounda by boat for going to the famous island of Spinalonga! The trip of 30 minutes to arrive there was beautiful! Our guide told us how was the life there and the whole history of the small island and other real stories of that period! Then, we han bbq on board with greek tastes and all the traditionnal beverage! I would like to do this tour again and take more pictures!
