Trip to Spinalonga is a just a taste of place rich in history and culture with interesting architecture and possibilities. The location of Elounda and Agios Nikolaos town give to this trip a unique taste of natural beauty and architectural and historical insights.

Great place to visit and imagine how life was for the inhabitants of this island back in the 40's/50's. Great views and historical information - obviously no shade so choose when you visit carefully.
