Price from: 69€


The history and the culture of the island of Spinaloga became one with human tragedy in the course of time. It carries the history of Ancient Greece as it served as a natural guard for the ancient city of Olou, the history of the Saracens pirates, the history of the Venetians as their fortress, the history of the Turks as their settlement and the history of the Greeks as the place where their leper would be sent into exile until 1957.


The excursion starts at 10h:00. Drive along the northern coast of the island driving through the popular fishing village of Elounda often visited by VIPs for the luxurious beach resorts in the area.

A small boat will take you to the now deserted island of Spinaloga where your guide will guide you through the ruins of what used to be a leper-colony from 1903 until 1957, where lepers could have a better life, medical help and economic support. The ruins of the market street and the shops, the hospital and many small houses in which the lepers lived isolated, can also be seen.

A stop for swimming and lunch will follow at the picturesque port village of Plaka opposite Spinaloga, before we return to Heraklion.
