The island of Spinalonga is located at the eastern section of Crete near Agios Nikolaos.

The Venetians, that had conquered the island since 1212, realizing that the coastal fortifications were easy to conquer by the enemies attacking from the vicinal hills, decided to strengthen their defense by constructing new fortifications at the top of the hill. The Venetian fire would thus have bigger throw, rendering Spinalonga an impregnable sea fortress, one of the most important in the Mediterranean basin.


You may be there by an organized excursion or by car.

The distance from Analipsi is almost 50km and about 58 min (it depends form traffic at Malia and Hersonisos).
