Originally, Spinalonga was not an island, it was part of the island of Crete. During Venetian occupation the island was carved out of the coast for defense purposes and a fort was built there. During Venetian rule, salt was harvested from salt pans around the island. The island has also been used as a leper colony (the last one in Europe). Spinalonga has appeared in novels (“The Island” by Victoria Hislop), television series, and a short film.
 We will have a guided tour around this famous island, which has a perimeter of 850m only. Venetians fortified the island in 1579 by building a fortress with 40 canons and today these are the best preserved walls in Europe.  
Spinalonga used to be a leper colony from 1903 until 1957 : lepers were provided medical help and economical support, so to ensure them a decent life. The ruins of the market street with the shops, the hospital and many small houses in which lepers lived their isolated life, can still be seen.
