Spinalonga, The island of the "Living Dead"
19,99 €


The years went by, civilizations succeeded, nations blended with each other, each governor usually ordered using fear and the commons either complied or rebelled to authority. Minoans, Achaeans, Dorians, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Saracean, Genoans, Venetians, Chainides, Ottomans, as well as Greek lepers from Crete and around the country lodged at those barn lands of Spinalonga and fed it not only with tears and pain but also with hope for life. Today, we stand with amazement against the works, which are still preserved -walls, bastions, churches, houses, streets and other buildings- works, which travel the visitor back at those times and report the story of this island.
