Do not hesitate to spend some time for visiting this historical venue. Venetian forteress and later the island of the Leper Hospital. Reachable by chartered boat from Neopolis, Elounda and Agios Nikolaos.
We departed from Elounda Harbour > 30 minutes cruising + 60 minutes on site (you need to go & return with the same boat ! Tickets featuring each boat's name !) : means 10 €/pers * for the cruise (but with a nice sangria "offered" by the captain and complete passing round tour of the island to take on the way back) and 2€/pers * for the access to the historical site.
No guiding leaflet or map on the spot (what a shame). Tip : bring your own travel book or buy a guide in a press shop before departure ! The only possibility to know the right itinerary on the island, otherwise you will miss interesting things. Remaining buildings, forteress, picture galery, church, fire walls ... quite a lot within 1 hour but really worthwhile !
