What you will discover here:
The island of Spinalonga. The first signs of settlement date back to Minoan times. In 1579 during the Venetian occupation of Crete, the Venetians built a fortress on the island to guard the bay of Mirabello. In 1715 the Turks, who occupied Crete for almost 200 years took over the fortress. Between 1900 and 1957, it served as a leper colony. At present, the island is an open-air museum.
