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.
The village of Plaka is a small picturesque village located about 16 km north of Agios Nikolaos and 5 km north from the sophisticated resort of Elounda. It is an old fishing village with a few taverns located by the shore and various kinds of accommodation. Plaka features lush green surroundings while retaining its natural beauty. There is a beautiful square where all the locals and tourists gather during the day.
