The island of Spinalonga (Σπιναλόγκα, officially Kalydon) was once part of the main island of Crete before being separated by the Venetians, who built an important fortress on its rocky hill in 1579. The fortress was used by the Ottomans before falling into disrepair, and in the 20th century, the island was also home to a leper colony. Take a guided tour to the island to discover its secrets and enjoy its beaches and shallow waters.
