To Nisi apo tin arhi - The Island Episodes from the beginning



The island of Spinalonga (GreekΣπιναλόγκα), officially known as Kalydon (Καλυδών), is located in the Gulf of Elounda in north-eastern Crete, in Lasithi prefecture, next to the town of Elounda. The official Greek name of the island today is Kalydon. Originally, Spinalonga was not an island, it was part of the island of Crete. During Venetian occupation the island was carved out of the coast for defense purposes and a fort was built there. A popular name for the island since Venetian rule is Spinalonga. During Venetian rule, salt was harvested from salt pans around the island. The island has also been used as aleper colony. Spinalonga has appeared in novels, television series, and a short film. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spinalonga
